The Brightest Thing You’ll Ever See

The fires beckon unconditionally
     while the butterflies scream with delight

The fires blacken universally
     while the turtles load their pistols overnight

The fires blister unambiguously
     while the squirrels hold short fuses to the light

The fires bluster uncontrollably
     while the sea lions swing their scabbards left and right

The fires becalm unpredictably
     while the dragonflies swarm to the fight

And the ashes smolder so regrettably
     as our charred bones make a memorable blight
