Skeem Design Apothecary Fireplace Matches | Poetry | White

By Skeem Design



Experience the ritual of lighting your fireplace for warmth and memories with Apothecary Poetry Fireplace Matches from Skeem Design. The beautiful and sophisticated is the perfect home decor addition. The cork lid and imprinted silk-screened poem from Skeem Design friend, poet Sean Kearney:

"Nothing becomes familiar in the dark.
So be a flame. Be a flame, if only to evidence
time’s metronome, reacting to invisible tides, 
leaning to the whims of any breeze of gravity. 
Be a flame even if, and maybe especially,
if there are none. Be a flame even if only to
paint gold the faces of those who are closest.
Alight, our chests rise and fall the same.
Be a flame or at least be its student.
Learn the smoke: dissipate from the crown
of your head, fold your visible light
and float upward."
