Shishir 2018 Poems - Tracie Lark



By Tracie Lark


Flame you are orange
Tame and dilated
Your tongue dabs at air
Learns unknowing pleasure

Flame you are red
Lick a hot spot
Pounce in to space
Ravenous and entitled

Flame you are blue
Stagnate and broody
Amused by foolish oxygen
Complexed by your own demise
