The Burn of Reinvention

1539093_6151040_b-1

slick puddles of  a  rainbow destroyed

lay like bubbling ponds

in the boiling August sun.

Waiting patiently

to singe the skin off my feet

and leave in its absence

vibrant, waxy splotches

of fuchsia

and brilliant topaz

that make me New

and young

again
