The Warmest Midnight In December

smoke billows forth in a greenred cloud
for I am a ball of fire
for I am a ball of fire
set to burn this city
and its icy incumbents
within this fragile snow globe
all their water – scalding vapor
swimming suffused in black smoke
from all their melting plastic
from all my rambling heat
because my heat, my heat, my heat
cannot be destroyed
cannot be created
cannot be destroyed
                    only transferred
for I am so, so, so very hot

for I am a ball of fire
for I am a ball of fire
