Sparking a light
a flame
that licks upon the seams
Marking to incite
to blame
a flicker against screams

Charred ends to fray
A whole ripped a piece
snapped threads to lay
shreds bereft of release

Smoldering within, without
a bout
blackens a cloth
a swath

Embroidered with coal
smudged a stitch
striking the soul
to seamless pitch
