This one is for Threadwars IV: Round II: Classic Literature (as I was fortunate enough to make it to the next round). This piece is based on one of my favorite books, Fahrenheit 451, Ray Bradbury's sci-fi classic about a dystopic future where books are outlawed and the ones who harbor them (and the knowledge they hold) are hunted as fugitives.

“Do you understand now
why books are hated and feared?
Because they reveal the pores
on the face of life.
The comfortable people want only
the faces of the full moon,
wax, faces without pores,
hairless, expressionless.” 
- Ray Bradbury
