Incendiary

 



Audio Version


 
You walk in…
a euphemism
for an arsonist

Your
dirty blonde tips
brown roots
dark sooth fingertips

You smelled like
diesel
kerosene
xxxxxxxsulfur

Just enough dirt
under your nails
to look beautifully
xxxxxxximperfect

There was a sense
the space between us would ignite
connected by
burning molecules of
xxxxxxxxxxinvisible air
xxxxxxxxxxmade to glow by
xxxxxxxxxxbad habits

You with your matchsticks
and I
with a bourbon
xxxxxxx…….and a bourbon

I wanted to burn down that place
entire civilizations
dedicate incendiary blocks to us
send embers dancing towards extinction
in your name

A moment of
xxxxxxxxxxhonesty
xxxxxxxxxXXXXXXxintangible
xxxxxxxxxxXXXXXXas fire
