by Audrée Kim
echoes unfold like envelopes carrying
messages of laughter.
at the same time wildfires blaze, untold.
smoke on the wind, a whispered lore,
a postcard of New York City wrapped in sprinkles of
magma. still, flames reach a distant cloud and
dreams dim in ashen haze,
a distant plight,
yet I dream of the cemetery and
borders, a shared endless night.
concrete jungle meets boreal fire,
in echoes of chaos,
new dreams inspire.
eyes look at smouldering skies
