Lengthy Poem Contest

begin with the stone
by EA Kane

u. fire

you believe that all must become yours.
that it is the way. you believe in the pale
seashell of night that you were created by
evolution to consume what you desire. your
skin roses in the air, becomes red and hot
and bursts into the sky like diamonds. you
ignite the sunflowers and the crickets. you
consume the bears and the bees, the snakes
and the swallows. you boil the river which
cradles the oyster and salmon. you melt the
metal. you blacken the sky. you want it all.
even if it is ash? 


this was your path, your end.
((proceed here  if you wish to see what you could be.))
