Firefighter

you wear skin but
it doesn't fit
not even when you grow a bit
it's tangled, battle-worn
frazzled and fringed
mangled and torn

you wonder, if you're caught by fire

A Dream Message Charlieku
by M. L. Kiser
A distant 
Doorway looms dark,
Dreary.

I approach,
I open it,
Dark woods…

I am pulled
Into those woods;
Alone.

Fox is there;
Animal guide;
Follow…

Magic tree;
I’m led to see,
Omen…

Broken limb;
Fox says I am,
Healing.

I wonder if THC
and our Holy Cooperative Spirit
could be cousins
like Grandmother Moon
and Grandmother Tree.

Why do you want to wonder 
about something as curious as that,
dear?

Magnolias bordering each side

A mountain range set the background

Beneath a luxuriant bright blue sky

With wisps and trails of tiny clouds

And the years
That lie between now
And when I meet you

Come
