Torch Song

Torch Song

A Poem by Honestly, Abe

Paper-            backs  crackle
When they burn
Twist turn-            tango
Folding inwards
Into ash
Into gaping souls
Escaping flesh
To start fresh coals
Brushing gray masked
Colors-            like the scales
Or (if you prefer)
Feathers of a
Hum-            mingbird
Symphony song-            choir
On paper in pitch ink

Torch song.
