Something Brighter

There’s kerosene in my conscience,
autonomous fires awaiting;
raucous flames that cut like blades,

bottomless embers,
lawless shades.

And homes we
built with pride choke up inhaling
monoxides of envy,
a Fahrenheit
brand of frenzy dead
set on bending brick
laid frames to the

whims of
ashes, until the
arson in old hearts abides,
helps to set the world alight,
something

burning in
the night to
prove
we can die with
something brighter than
the darkness we’ve
accrued.
