Light Me On Fire

Light me on fire
See what might transpire
As the paper’s edge blackens
And the ink stains ash

Light me on fire
And use my remains
As a grey powdery pigment
In your paint

Light me on fire
And watch the orange beetles
Run with the heat
Around the gashes

Light me on fire
I make light as you linger
Taking your energy
And scorching your fingers

Light me on fire
So that I may be cleansed
Baptism by blaze
I won’t question your ways

Light me on fire
And see what happens
As I crumble and decay
And with heat wash away
