Year 2: Day 62 – Bottle Rocket

Bottle rocket keeps a record of wrongs
on a little notepad underneath its tongue,
a mouthful of carbon gas
for a rainy day

Bottle rocket catches injustices,
personally tasting each one,
swallowing bits of vitriol
saved in the deep

Bottle rocket knows a sin to come
before it’s happened, before it’s done,
and shoots it straight to heaven
tied to its soul

Bottle rocket dies for all the world,
so full of adopted transgression
it hardly knows why it falls
back down to Earth
