Vocation(For Scarlett)

Young.
I watched the candle burn.

It’s fascination
two little flames

burning in my eyes.

Tell my Dad

I want
to enter

into the flame

become
the thing

be
the flame

not just know it
but be it.

He laughs.

“Either you’re a poet
or you’re mad.

I grow up
to be

a mad poet.

A poet in heart - definitely! I do not know what is in your mind - i see only a naked heart!
Mad, indeed...but poet for real, for sure, and INDEED! Even to see the possibility of 'becoming the flame....' is what it is all about anyhow!
