how can i describe being both lit aflame and scorched, burned, the rubble of wreckage?  

as if i am perpetuated destruction embodied, 

burned and burning still

i held the lighter, knowing i’m made of gasoline. 

the fibers of ropes caught in the flame, singed and unattached i drifted

but i am still on fire. alone, invisible, aflame. 

is this what they mean by chaos? 

this epoch of flames i return to

carnivorous, consuming until i am bones, devoid of meat

in the midst of destruction i am destroyed
