INCENDIARY

from the flames she leaps

a single ember

traversing the brisk, night sky

naked


part of her lingers

in the pit below

growing, glowing, charring

ash

as her heat builds

emanating and filling

the quiet vacancy surrounding her


the wild within

drifts

floating higher and higher

a charged fragment

weaving between the stars

guided by her own incandescence

a pioneer

unattached


all the while knowing

that within her is this

perpetual potential

to spark up a new blaze

with nothing but a

glance


one part

bold, brazen

unafraid and powerful


the other

quiet, curious

a voyager of the dark abyss


both active

ethereal

bona fide

but burning
