Fire Verse

We were
from a separate universe
I was all “verse”
and he was all “base line”
even his walk
had this sorta “boom bip” to it
his heart spoke beat box … and me?  I was fluent …
didn’t even need rosetta stone
and even tho we didn't speak the same language, I couldn't leave him alone.
Moth to the flame type attraction
my reaction / was joan of arc
flint rock sparks and my gasoline heart …
but there’s not a damn thing you can do with a cold ass base line
if they won’t allow your fire -rhyme
to illuminate the dark.
