logs on a bonfire
bones of a life
set to blaze
raising licks of
bright flame
illuminant memories
burning the brands
of identity onto
the skin of the air
sending smoke
into crosscurrent
breezes diaphanous
figures arisen
gray wavering
flickering portraits
blurred quickly
dispersed by the
scud of fleet time
leaving scents
thin ascended aromas
of ash on the wind
mere burnt offerings
paltry reminders
of moments in
the life of one most
unremarkable man
