Book Burning

This life needs a bonfire, all these
books in need of burning, all this
burning in need of a pit of raw earth
in which to smolder for hours and
hours after the heat has reduced the
flesh to ash, the pages to embers and
featherweight motes that will float
like blackened angels set free and
rising up into the great wide open.
