Alive and on Fire




Alive and on Fire

we lay on leaves smeared across an earth-soaked canvas
      ochre clinging to a riotous threshold as you take my hand
light the kerosene, for the morning has never felt so alive

imagine a world without the words ---- PAD Challenge #3




imagine a world without the words

i hitched a ride on an airplane
rode it wherever it wanted to go
sat through the pushes and the pulls
and closed my eyes to see this story without words
but i never had to imagine
the words never existed

i rode this plane all night long
made a stop in a town i had never heard of
and draped my fingers on its surface
just like god would if he were alive
it was the only one to gently place a bullet in my heart
and send me off on my way wanting badly to return
i just never caught my plane
