Dot the night sky with fiery lanterns
Let red rule the expanse for a little while.
Sit, with feet dangling in the quick sand pit.
Let your toes be sucked in –
rip them out.
Live a second life,
hold your first for ransom –
take what you want, then kill it.
Bring a suitcase, fill it with rocks –
lug it around, leave it in a motel room,
the cheap kind –
cigarette burned carpets.
Light the world on fire,
get jailed for arson, burn down a falling building.
Think bigger, sin bigger.
I’ll do that too.
We’ll bring out the worst in us.
