fire between breaths

you have to set fire to your head periodically
because it is made of old pages
and you can taste the dust

do you want to be bookshelves?
or are you in nervous fingers at a reading
where someone interprets their favourite poem?

spiral bound notebook
post it note

i have set the page on fire
between the breaths of others
and then stood up and let the flame out
