Mining the Secret

March 1, 2014

I’ll say it now

as I’ve said it before:

the sky is on fire

and all day long it burns, burns, burns.

But nobody believes me.

The clouds hide the blaze

until someone sends up a paper kite

that comes raining back as ashes.

See, I say, it’s proof of the fire!

Don’t be silly, they scoff,

it’s just the atmospheric pressure.

And for some reason this makes sense to them.

If only they’d try an asbestos kite, they’d see.

But perhaps seeing isn’t always believing.
