Poem per week: In the Unlikely Event of a Fire by Rosa Stevens

In the Unlikely Event of a Fire

 

Smoulder no more and put your spirit out.

Suffocate the blaze, don't give her feul.

Don't use those words as kindling,

Burn your your bitterness not the living room. 

 

Spitefulness stings the skin.

Don't give it life.

 

Follow the set procedure,

Leave all baggage at the door.

Don't go in for another jab,

Or to save somebody.

 

Adulthood is the exit-sign.

Evacuate.
