Arsonists

I lived with an arsonist, Keith

burning down hotels on Route 1.

I didn’t know it until I saw his face on the news.

I didn’t know that she was an arsonist too,

burning the house,

igniting the past in hot flames.

 

My ex-husband

was an arsonist of the worst kind,

causing my heart to burn

the greatest fire of all.
