Let’s say what you want lives
with what you don’t.
To put out one fire
you must set another.
A forest isn’t needed for this.
A vaccine. The hair of the dog.
When it’s kill to cure, a hot photon
spinning with contradiction
will burn through probability burning
through what holds you captive
in dreams of your house up in flames
you climbing out, free as a fugitive.
