after one month of deafness,

her anger rekindled

to a full flame.

 

She rambled and fumed

to a blue flowing fire,

consuming every exposed limb.

 

I stood back

watching the heat,

avoiding the tongues

(difficult to do)

licking out toward me.

 

I shook my head

tried to reach sand

water – anything-

to extinguish your fire.
