Poetry Fireplace Match Bottle

$ 42.00

skeem's apothecary fireplace match bottles are a sophisticated and updated option for storing your matches, featuring a silk-screened design and cork lid. the poetry design is silk-screened with a poem written by their 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.

the bottle features skeem's exclusive strike-on-bottle design and has a striker strip on the back of the bottle for lighting all 120 matches in style.
