Embers, Soot

Immolate yourself
Tear the match across the packet
Greased fingers pinched
Panic at the fire

You can’t burn without a spark
You can’t fall without a drop
Unnatural acting, expanding exponential
Frightened of the coal

A cottage flickers
Timber pillars quail and shrink
Soot is left
Roll in it
