runway four


churning black tar beneath your knees
smudges shape your coarsely skin
ignoring the rustling of sensate trees
they speak clearly to lure you in

the fire you set next to the churned bowl
will soon have its way with the dark
center you into an amber glow
where you'll meditate on a lonely spark

it kicks into the bowl
of sulfur, saltpeter and charcoal
a combination so potent,
your enemies will sure relent

but of course here's the mistake you made,
blind revenge you'll regret
melting your face into,
an eternal combustion engine of death
