27/30 Cactus On Fire

Prompt: Find a picture of a cactus on fire. Write.

Cactus On Fire
He said,
"I have lived
your life
twice over.
I have tumbled
in and out
of love."

Time sprinkles,
light casts
shadows on puppets.

And he travels away
from flames
until his flint like skin sets fire
to his pride, to his house
to his bedroom
to a prickly cactus
sitting on a dusty windowsill.
