Matchboxes

Women stand to fill their emptiness with fire-sticks , not sit down till evening so they quickly run away in case of fire.Matchboxes are empty like old houses in Norway of chopped wood’s smelling letters of note written about by poets on papers of pulp ,like Norway houses.

Match boxes are like tiny empty houses such that you roam about freely in them to experience wind between their walls through absence of furniture, for minds to wander away from them to the hills to know where the wind has come from or where the fire resides at stick-heads women run away from while standing.
