With fire’s power
man conquered all the others:
we first broke the earth,
crude skill crafting cruder forms;
water became steam,
propelling generations;
when we tamed lightning,
we drove back fear of the night;
we shaped our own wings
and the world shrank beneath us.
Finally at last,
we rule over everything
except our ravenous hearts.
