Burn through the retinas
flecks of fire
spark up and burn
burn through whatever you want to see
and take it away.

Far away.

Oh, nothing is the same,
far and near
fuzz and fear.
Nothing is the same,
even when focused and in frame
it burns, burns through
quick and to the end
without a moment
to catch what you see
in words or photos.

Or just in your mind.


Burn through your brain cells
one by one by one
I take them and curl around them
hold them closer until
I absorb all in the burn.

Until I am ash and smoke.

Nothing more.
