Do you remember?

Do you remember?

by Elizabeth Challinor



A ball of fire

Ignites in your trembling hands

You look down

In tender disbelief

Molten memories

Swirling in your palms

Leaking through fingers

Dripping on feet

Your body is about to go up in flames

Time dissolves into tears

Lava and water meet

The cells of your body smile gracefully at each other

Past and present make peace
