A Season of Fire

In the stew
of char and drizzle
lost abodes of all sorts
the dead and homeless
the completion of a cycle
we search our story
for a motive
or at least
a lie.

Nothing
is what we imagine
in the richness of the summer
sun, our fables outgrew their cover
a tinder of misunderstanding
the importance of ‘us’
the misguided
attempt
to live
in the
center
of the universe.

At season’s end
wonder
will have to be
enough.
