A Letter Aflame
Against the baleful tide fluorescent fire, Borne by two colorless, anesthetized Fingers, trembles at the quake of heartache And burns the stiff, osseous paper black. Beneath my now new eyes, The quiet flame Dissolves along its path The written words I shall never forget, The written words Sheer bitterness begat. In the tinctured verdant of the bloodwood, Pulled rude from me like slippery marrow, An emigrant soul hesitates before Floating wearily skyward with the smoke.
