Anything Too Green


Before nightfall, gather wood
for, at the very least,
a rip-roarin’ fire
that will last through daybreak.

No sense in freezing
if we still have blood
flowing through our veins.

Just don’t get anything too green,
or the smoke will howl
with the dying breaths
of those we burn tonight.
