Wildfire

I heard
the sirens from afar
I knew 
the back door wasn’t barred

and when
the wall of flames arrived
they found
what they’d been looking for

they’re gonna let
they’re gonna let
they’re gonna let
it burn 

all night
the wildfire swept the hills
I knew
nothing was left behind 

and when
the blaze consumes close friends
we lose
all hope of rebuilding

they’re gonna let
they’re gonna let
they’re gonna let
it burn 

the ash
so dark and delicate
white smoke
still rising from the red

and with
the dragon charred and glass
they found
what they’d been looking for
