Zippo (For Darin Bulai)

Light yourself on fire
Just do it
It’ll be fun

And you can
Tell your kids
About it

And you can
Act like
You have
All the questions

Pour the kerosene
Over what passes
For entrails today

We’re all roadkill
In one vestibule
Or another
We’re all dispassionate
When push comes
And the martyr
Refuses to absolve you
Of your synergy

I snorted infinity
Up both nostrils
I did it on a dare
I did it
Because I was bored
And Einstein dared me to

Light yourself on fire
It’ll be like the old days
When shit came out
And wouldn’t
Go back in
So tirelessly

Charles Cicirella
