Summer Burn

Port Aransas, TX | Medium format film image by author (Diana camera)

all season we flew close to the fire
when a puff of wind put out a flame
we hurried to re-light the wick,
digging it out of the wax,
from end to end,
never minding the singed wings

but in the end
fire still burns
the fierce factory of the sun
will not be denied
the old barrel gets lopsided
from being rolled out
again
again
and again


Thank you for reading!
