ignite me and I will dance,
yearning for your propane, before I
flicker in favor – your catalyst,
I recoil from your heavy hand,
forged in your grip, for I am the
inferno, I covet your flick – my
companion in misdeed, to burn
and wither away the devil in between
your lips, plead to void me free
from this thrill and I will glint in recital,
set aside my vices, for you are raveled –
my pine for destruction from your thumb
on the silver spark wheel that is my spine,
in this detriment, kindle the
fuel with lament, once the ashes
fade.
