The Itch for Spark

flicked a lit match in dewy
grass to watch it
fizzle,

a healthy, watered patch is
bound to snuff out any flame so
heedlessly dispatched
,

i’ve lighter fluid
on the brain
again
,

another wildfire
claims my
heart,

then it’s back in the
matchbox to get another-
stick’s still itchin’ for
that spark.
