Fiction is Fiction – Is Your Mind Open?

I do not write of dragons or spaceships
Yet
Perhaps some day I will

I write about the mercury
That rises and falls
In my veins

The diamonds that are mined from
My eyes
When I feel something

I set fires in dark corners
So you can watch them burn
Or let them destroy you

You can deny them too
If fire’s not your thing

Perhaps you choose your books
Like you choose people
What does that say about you?

If you only like dragons and spaceships
You’ve closed your doors
Maybe your mind

In all that grey
What’s the matter?
