AFTER THE BURN

skeletons of

blackened trees

erect a monument

to themselves

in this twisted landscape

where corruption

burns itself in effigy

and settles for pennies on the dollar

in which a spark of anything but Light

(well past the point

of redemption)

can signal the first shot fired

in this war of shepherds

versus those who want

nothing more than to see

the flock burn.
