smoke gets in your eyes (20170616)

douse me in accelerants
use a word as effective
as a zippo shielded from the wind
to ignite me

shall we count, then?

see how fast i burn
almost as if I were made
of dry, bundled grasses
whispering, shushing

what number did you reach
before there was nothing left of me?
i hope you were not distracted
by all that smoke

      1. I never saw an emoji in Star Trek. They missed a trick there! Most important 21st century invention. If only I knew how to use them.
