if you do not understand the nature of fire

how it purges and burns out the dross of waste

while the seeds in the blackened ground

burst and are dispersed

if you do not comprehend this aspect of the process

how we all are carried forth in this blaze

and land in the fresh territory

of continued existence

if for whatever reason you do not get it

you have no way to go but back to earth

as if all that were left of you

is a pair of eyes weeping in the ashes

a legend to those who'll barely remember

the old dispensation and tales of tear-clouted dust...
