Flame Voice:

Transcending All Fear of Death

aren't we basically garbage pits
cluttered with years of debris?

too much junk snarls our lives
muddling us in ennui

since all things are destined for dust
why fear searing flames?

real growth involves
non-clinging

so welcome the fire's
embrace

Remember –
nothing is burning

& within each crematory
celebrate the crème,
the fleeting dreams,
& the crêpes
