FIRE US

Matchstick, matchstick—
one of
two dozen,

torn from your
bed—still
choosing to succor,

paraffin
wax and powdered-
glass-headed,

callously
struck—but
brilliantly bruising:

potassium
chlorate, red
phosphorus, sulfur!

Teach us—how you
sustain-
yet-relinquish;

help us!—we can't
keep this
madness

up—for
too much
longer either.
