A Fire Hazard To My Soul

There are perfumed letters from you                                                                                             On the top shelf of the hall closet                                                                                                  A fire hazard to my soul                                                                                                                                                In the shadows of the night

    Michael, I'm not gonna bust out with the fire-extinguisher. Somehow I don't think you need to exit the fire escape. a wonderful poem.... flames and perfume.. how alluring... Linda

    Lovely poem, Michael...but of course, I can take this one two ways, perhaps they set you on fire, or perhaps they burn. by the way, I love the new photo of you. hugs, Catie :)
