April 30/30 Poetry Challenge: Burning House

Burning House

by Seth Rogovoy

 

The air is getting hotter.

Fire is everywhere.

The whole damn place is

Going up in flames.

But there is no one to call

To put out this

Burning house.

It’s not that kind of

Fire.

It’s not that kind of

Flame.

But it sure is

Hot as hell.

 

 

Burning House II

 

by Seth Rogovoy

I’d rather be a burning house

Than a burning man.
