letters like sparks express phrases of flame pouring forth like drops of rain out our mouths like gasoline /so we burn on bright we could breathe fire set this world alight we could breathe fire/ breathe like bellows lungs to fan the coals make glowing streams of our souls to flood the earth with glories untold
// take the coal touch my lips purge this soul scar this sinner make me whole sear this skin let your holiness kiss my lips and I will go //
