Can you burn


Can’t even write
Can’t even think
Insidious cold
Brown wallpaper
and purple smoke
Fresh air and rainwater
Electric and water
Water and wood
Broken spade,
woodworm handle
Woodlice under buckets
dripping from the roof
Gas heater
monoxide detector
three bars
Crushed apples,
squashed oranges.
Music, music,
keyboard
Fire burning,
burning fire
