Silver is what you try to hide

Silver is what you try to hide

Your hair
a muscle of water
black from the burning
pours around the fire
of your face

some day
you’ll have to let
the charcoal crumble
become the silent silver
at the heart of your sun

torn from the earth
I’ll lay bluebells
on the ash of your fire
