One more melanoma day 
ends itself in ash and cinder.

Our crisp souls, clichéd

to yet another auto-da-fé

to competitive conformity.

But (just now starting)

we mount our nocturnal bucket brigade,

begin passing forth and back

these cool liquids of our life

from one to the other,

refill and back again,
refill and back again

between two suns.

--Duane Vorhees
