fire works

flames lick and linger

i wonder as the heat lurks

closely to my finger

testing how fire works

orange fire feeds

it takes the life of some as it smirks

while it saves others in need

is this how fire works

blood on my hands

as my conscience jerks

i shudder and toss the plans

it’s time to see how fire works

kind words in the letter

but all it does is irk

as ashes the paper looks better

now i know how fire works

flowers burst above me

the new year brings its own perks

but you’re not welcoming it with me

where you are, how’s the fireworks?
