In Which We Meet Fire, the Artist

*

Candles and Pills don’t mix!

I warned her,

but that was before the curtains

gently brushed the guttering candles

and awoke some crazy, abstract Artist

who daubed the whole room with flames.

*

Her house mates woke

and dragged her outside just in time

to stand a barefoot lawn in the frosty dawn,

but she went groggily stumbling back on in

to retrieve something or other.

I don’t know what,

money, clothes, a cat..

*

Didn’t come back out,

Fire, the Artist,

had reduced her to a charcoal sketch.
