Criticize

Their

pupils

converged

like pupils in rooms

waiting

for

classes.

 

Hiding

behind

fences

they called eyelashes

they

scattered

 

matches

Prepared to burn

in sojourns

before

they were extinguished.

 

Living those matches

burned and converged

in its remains

  • calling it ashes.
