ritual of fire

roots , flesh and grain
offered up as sacrifice
by ritual of fire
upon white hot coals
aromatic with mysterious unguents

the high priest turns and gathers them
with implements of sacred wood and iron
prepares them with anointments
of secret herbs and lotions

with eyes and hands
by ancient signs examines them
announcing at the precise time
when the gods of hunt and fire
have blessed their offerings
rises and proclaims aloud
to those assembled
the BBQ is ready.
