Searing Drivel - Poem by Joyelle Osburn

I am writing these verses
from inside a dragon
with it's mouth seamed shut.
Instead the flames reverse,
and I am burned at the stake.
So please excuse the pieces
of me in the ash
that you sneeze.
I write these lines
from inside a dragon
with it's mouth seamed shut.
