Artist Sarah Van Sanden: Since fire in this poem reads as both a creative and a destructive force, I was really conflicted about how to represent it, but it has a huge presence that I couldn’t avoid. Writer Dolan Morgan: The light and colorful approach here brings out more of the youth of the characters than was present in my brain’s terrible rendition.
