poem: "a stage and a flame"

a stage and a flame

even when you pull back the curtain
everything is blue and hazy
I'd walk that distance
but I don't dare hop those velvet ropes.

did I hallucinate the patterns I remember?
my dreams bleed into reality; ink kissing water
my memories twist into new shapes, laughing

you burn
like a coal or maybe a comet
(I couldn't dream of a star).
