Alligator

Bus reflecting the warm glow of the flames.
The darkened windows where, here and there,
candlelight and lamplight shows at the curtain edges.

I don't think anyone played it straight. The big fire burns.
Waves of heat. Liquid orange like lava. White flames
and the log, as it burns, looks like an alligator without a head.

  1. White flames/ and the log, as it burns, looks like an alligator without a head.

    This sentence has a raw force to it. That headless animal gives me the shivers.

  2. Thanks WB. At least there's the warm glow of a bus to take the edge of the shivers.
