A Stage I Have Set On Fire (January day 31)

what I wrote is

not a bucket list


not something you should strive for

or be jealous of


what I wrote is

not a supernova


it is just

a rooftop where I sit and think

the flip of a switch


what I wrote is

not a black hole


it is just

a stage

I have set on fire

a day

stretching into pandemonium


and isn’t that

what all the lives are

everyone could

make a movie out of their moments

if they only

stopped to write it down
