arsonist’s lullaby

you must run
as fast as you can
they will catch you
haunt you
deign you immor(t)al
and keep you forever –

tattered swords
bloody rags
rolling of the feet and
the agony of the people
pray you prayed hard enough
every fleeting look
is one more moment
for them
to catch up

hands reaching out to you
don’t get lost now
the docks are there
the boat is in sight
you can make  it
just jump –
