Cigarette Burns

A Poem by Pratik

The black, cavernous lesions

Don’t you let them heal darling

Let them smolder

With the fierceness of stars

Bleed,

With the temerity of rivulets

And when it’s time

You will draw patterns out of them,

Motifs and fortune spelling oracles

For you ain’t the creature slain

You are poetry in motion,

Unfettered,

Unrelenting.
