A Moth to Flame

steered again towards
the flame,

moth halts
then turns to
fly away,

forest’s brightest pyres leave
a bone-deep char on
tips of wings,

and a hint of
nicotine infuses
skin,

drawn towards
another
flame-

but moth’s grown
bored of the
game.

++++

on search for hotter way
to feel twilight’s
sizzle,

moth carves out a space in
silence and curls
up in the
middle.

pardon the interruption. 😉
