Fire Forager

December 4, 2018

 

foraged to not be forgotten

found in an aimless wander

in hopes that won't be lost again

this friendship of mind is a dark streak on a

golden feather

left and right feet ache at the sounds of moving

Earth

so I attempt at flight

 

my face is the sight of deforestation

burnt edges and fumes of fire

my frailty a fountain of tears

the last drops from spring rain

fragile against black soot and followed shadows

hollow like dried bones

marrow is frightening when it's your own

left right to rot before my eyes

 

foraged to not be forgotten

found in an aimless wander

so I attempt at a fiery flight

once more

leaving ash and soot

muddied waters in wake

a tireless, fireless furnace

burnt to the core

gone out and left right before closed eyes

singed shut

smoked by forgotten fumes of fire

filtered through these faltering lungs

in an attempt to take flight
