through the briars
as the world burns
to a cinder
two steps behind

of lust
of rage
of anger
of desire

the needle
pierces the cornea
of cataract collusion

the blind men point
in various directions
leading down paths
fraught with peril

still running
as the flames
lick bare heels
the plants scream
