Day 44 – If You Burn

If you burn, I’ll know.
If you walk in holding the walls up,
fixing your eyes on some trivial thing
to convince us you’re not processing
all our venereal thoughts, overheard
over bottles, through headphones,
broadcasting from our stinking pores
like cheese in the sun; if you take us
as some great coagulation of pity,
some trial of patience and if you sit
in the midst of that chaos and deem
the same of each, every one of us
a caricature ripe for the designs
you’ll spin, the ways we’ll prove
your theories; and if you mark me
as equivalent, that the pencil wasn’t
lifted when the crowd was drawn,
if your art glosses over me- let it.
I’ll take you and show you later.
If you burn, I’ll know.
