Can’t Stand Still

this is not the good kind of lightning
the eureka of a magic spell
the charge of a dream made real

this is the bolt that sets fire to trees
it levels the forest
& blackens the earth

& all you can taste is aluminum & ash

bones warp & break
teeth grind up rust
tears stain the skull
oceans dry up

& all you can savor is ozone & dust

& every seat is the electric chair
but the execution is always flawed
