five coals

one 
bed of coal
is a turtle shell
legs torn from the dance
on its back

two
forms fire
zipper flash
under the skin thick tent of night
bright bodies of possibility burn

three
lay down
below swollen bellied storms
pregnant ladies
they hiss and moan

four
kamikazes
clashing
through the sky
like Icarus plummeting

five
cocoons
are bodiless
ghosts'
rising in flames
