ashen angels

today
i lay
on the ground
ignoring
the cold bite
to make angels
in ashes
as the world
smolders
around me
staring
at the sky
with
funnel clouds
pulling at
the plumes of
greasy smoke
a big smile
stapled to
my face
little
ashen angels
in a row
across the yard
my heart
screaming out
for you
