“Dancing Octopus Hearts”



“Dancing Octopus Hearts”

Enter into the porcelain room

Sits a table placed in the center

Cause the birds have built nests inside each ceramic cavity

Octopus hearts dance to the offbeat shindig

Coming from the birds

Playing music inside the head and lungs

Shape the clay

Molding it into a beautiful bouquet

Toss it in the kiln

Watch it reach to temperatures between 2,192 and 2,552 degrees

Within the fired clay

Formation of mullite and glass arises taking place

Wait to its cooled down

Placing the porcelain bouquet on the table

Sets off the rest of the room

Shutting the door behind

Octopus hearts continue to dance

To the offbeat music coming from the birds
