Poetry Fireplace Match Bottle

Our 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 our 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 our exclusive strike-on-bottle design and has a striker strip on the back of the bottle for lighting all 120 matches in style.
