Henious Jade

she was a scorched earth birth

a woman born in a fire storm

in blinding white and heinous jade

a glance, a taste, before the blaze

torn but not from what she’s made

napalm lip balm, female fusillade

an incendiary legacy

awakened in her mother’s veins

all it takes

is a list, a kiss

a flick of the wrist

and, oh—

the flames, the flames….
