On Fire

written by: Trevor Graham


stone sparked char meat greets
the rise of fire-eyed mankind
anti-pyros froze

torch terrors scorch towns
score war-torn bone scorn and gold
big brains birth black blood

missiles never miss
sol’s hearth drips hot hydrogen
earth embers piece pleas

shrimp chimps think…aha!
crowd the canopy cosmos!
spheres siphon stars dry

last chimps pass, stars ash
embers exhaust energy
no meat at heat death
