Grasshopper

Words spark on dry tinder.
The ululation of combustion
sends of fingers of hot light:
meteor tails of viral fire
consume the dictionary.

Tides swallow the child’s toe
then convey the ancient body
to other side. Only enough time
between to say a few things.

A thirst to transcend the
shimmering pond breeds
a mosquito cloud of language.
