Echoes of Laughter

“it’s all accumulation and the aftermath,”
she says as I would question her
about the failing earth and
giants unaware that they
are sinking every day –

we share what’s left
of predetermination as
the echoes of her laughter
warm my heart.

Let Me Burn

maybe I am selfish
like a spark on snow
deserves the dark, but
fire is the only light
that burns so much
as truth, so give me
solace in the cigarettes
still lit, pretending
you aren’t his, and
let me burn.
