Superstition

To this human,
fire was the first word
for out of mind.

Flame before flower. Burn.
Early bird, Burn.

Self of reason, wanted
wingless self, Love-
I-refuse-to-call-love self.

For every field, there is a god
I don’t believe in,
gravity, ridiculous as any heaven.

What maddened
me to making
I burn alive.
