Fire in a small town
hear the noise
feel the heat
smell the smoke.
Fire in a small town
Hear the noise Hear the noise
The sirens whaling
The voices yelling
Directing, commanding, watching.
Feel the heat
Moving with the wind
like waves on water
engulfing all
Feel the heat
Smell the smoke Smell the smoke
Everywhere everywhere everywhere
Clingling, choking, darkening
The afternoon sky to nite

 (Thankfully, no one was injured or killed in this fire)
