scorched

photographer: Keran Ducasse

i have overheated the syllables
the words burnt black
my tongue charred with this red-hot verse
the eagerness was too great
uncontrolled conflagration spread over
the estuary of my jowls
all of me scorched to the core

this incineration forces me 
to sit in black silence
and listen to my smouldering breath move
in and out
in this new 
wordless dawn
