Watch it rise by Olivia Wright

Olivia Wright | November 9th, 2017 | poetry | No Comments

Poem

chewed off fingernails
painted black
watch her unscrew the bottle cap
clear, crystal liquid
watch it drain
onto her tongue,
into the streets
watch it catch fire
burn the trees
watch it swallow your house,
blacken the sky
screw the bottle cap back on
shut your eyes
inhale the smoke
watch it rise
lick your lips, one last time
