"At the age of six I wanted to be a cook. At seven I wanted to be Napoleon. And my ambition has been growing steadily ever since." ~Salvador Dali


The lines in her face are perfect
They trace deeper and thinner
From her vision to mine
As if their shadows drag across my skin
Sinking in

And I can see wisps of wheat for miles
Spreading themselves out under smooth sky
In the crinkled pattern
Fanning out from her eyes

Those lines crawl to my ears
And whisper of the spark
That lit her body and the fields.
The sky
On fire.


The author's comments:
This is for a dear relative. Saying that she's a bit difficult would be the understatement of the year, but she's had quite the life. In short, she's kind of weirdly strict but awesome.
