fire fire fire

in the colors I can’t speak


I send it back and forth

on winds

I can’t have calculated


so it’s better to just

hope they stay awake


make me another lifeline

carve me another story

or I will spend every inch right here


sun blazing

now I’ve done it all

everything you can touch

framed in flames


I strike the matches, throw them

one by one

into the universe

with every handshake

I’m breathing you into



come on

you are all I can see

I send rockets to

collapse at your fingertips


come on

spray paint the world with me

I hope you stay awake

Universal Match Throwing

We could make money off that idea.  Another gem ~s~
