fire // strange nights

I smell fire in the air tonight again.

A few days ago, I went half in a panic

light white, darkness, warmth, and my least favorite colour, yellow.

outside to see if a house was on fire.

I learned then to look at where some

wherein the region there was a fire

since I couldn’t see it from here- and

then to understand why it went here

check the direction of the wind. and

the panic and the worry I felt then,

now I simply drown in the knowledge

that quite far away, the fire is already

addressed and I can sleep, others know,

it’ll be ok without me being awake.
