Bonfire

Building a bonfire

Of memory

Piling flammable fear

Onto unkindest kindling

Dousing it with gasoline

Throwing matches

Watching it ignite

Piles and piles and piles of debris

Rise as smoke

Soot

Cinders

Ash

Stick to my face

Catch in my eyelashes

I’m coated in the ash

Of

My own resurrection
