Ashy Heart

Scarlet swirling sent

Skywards

Crackling coals cool

The heat remains in 

The buried ash

A glowing cave surrounded.
It glimmers, glows and doesn’t 

Go out

It feeds its flames with memories of fire

The nourishing thoughts.
Embers reddening to black

It is consumed by consumption and feeds a carbonated, carbonised  world

The blackened edges of our society 

Brittle around its ashy heart
