Text for Tired Eyes:

This was a life unplanned,
the burning of what came before.
I’ve been soot covered and dirty
longer than memory serves,
I’ve been coughing too, long spells
of it.  There’s a humming to my lungs.
It was sparks to start, barely alight
but smoldering in the tall grass
I have known since my youth,
no winds came to spread it,
it was fire in hibernation, and I waited.
Years, I waited.
Footsteps came first, the sound
rustling the brown that hadn’t yet
been charcoal painted,
and I heard them coming.  
You walked into the smoke,
head up and silent,
minutes later, a wall of flame
followed.  
-Tyler Knott Gregson-
