woman, burning

woman,  b u r n i n g

like date nights in chernobyl

the noxious kisses

weren’t needed and nobody reprieved it

when she laid down

on the core

woman,  b  u  r  n  i  n  g

like bullet holes in the sun

the warning shots

weren’t heeded and nobody believed it

when she made good

on the threat

One thought on “woman, burning

  1. Beautifully well expressed. The visuals are dark and incredibly driven.

    As I read your poem, the title reminded me of this music video by the band ‘How to Destroy Angels’.

    Watch and you’ll see what I mean.
