Fire: To Burn or Warm?

23 claws scratched out Clause 28

Or thereabouts?

I AM THE dial ON THE RADIO

        I phoned YOU WHERE YOU Dined

               I TURNED UP THE volume WHEN YOU DIED

FULL OF RATS- BELLY FULL- MOUTH FULL- TONGUE SWOLLEN

They were orphans before now –they miss your

       Inevitable danse macabre that’s

            Proof- evidence -a hardened fact that you were ever born

It’s been up hill- up river- a sort of heart of darkness kind a week

      Sweating through CHIPPED BONE

And melting into a SMILE with honour

            Form content & intention is NOTHING if it’s left in an empty VASE

When I flirt and flash my EYELASHES I see you in the corner of my eye

        Prettier AND younger in half light

SECOND HAND Warmth or THIRD WORLD burns from the FIRE?
