AEDM – Day 22 – Firewalker


Art Every Day Month – Day 22 – Firewalker

FIREWALKER

The nameless crowds unenlightened

Clothed in indecision

Passive aggressive in their lock-down mode

Sunglasses gloves and jackets

Covering their Soul Spots

Points of entry where the Light might enter

Light that might save the Firewalker’s soul

Their silence should be testimony

Bearing witness like trees whose rings are made of gold

From inhaling the black soot of words

Spoken to flawless children

In fits of rage and belt riddled screams

Acts unbecoming humans (in theory) who

Burn the wood chipped remains of

Imaginary friends and fantasies – dreams

Written on walls and headless dolls’ hearts

In rooms where beds and chairs

Become kindling for ruined lives

Children dance through circles of flames

Ignited by self-righteous accusations

Crimes and betrayals of the Father

Their souls escaping through windows

Left open by the gods who foretold

That some souls travel in packs like dogs

Eating their young and infirm

The nameless inert crowd still silent

The Firewalker steps light-footed and swift across

Flames of doubt and dead trust

Staring ahead at the Place of Creation begging

Let me kneel at the feet of Love

Forgive me my sins

But I know not what I’ve done

    so, are you writing about the last electon? 😉

    Their souls escaping through windows

    Left open by the gods who foretold

    That some souls travel in packs like dogs

    wow – there’s a whole story in just those three lines! That’s a path I’d like to explore!
