today i am coating
these walls
with kerosene.

i will carefully paint
over each
square inch of the canvas
paying special attention
to each nook and crevice,
pull out a single match
from its small cardboard
strike it on the rough
exterior and
let it slowly burn down
until it scorches the tip
of my thumb and index finger
forcing me to let it drop
in rotation
to the ground.

creating instant
i pull out my
lawn chair
and enjoy the show.

the flames dance
a delicate
waltz to the
orchestra of crackling

i am burning down these
walls today.
i have no need
for them anymore.
