Man Made Fire

Before man made fire
did he carry flames from the tips of volcanoes?
Did he sleepwalk through moonlit nights,
or sleep with eyes open
gazing at the inexplicably bright stars,
their constellations imprinted against retina.
In the fringe between waking life and the unconscious
did the dots connect in his subconscious –
images of kings pointing to a past
no one cared to remember,
but were merely fated to recollect
as their gaze turned upward.
