one incendiary glance


fire-protection-1312423_960_720we have this friend, ophelia,
most stunning girl around
she enlists new paramours
whenever she’s in town
all it takes from her is one
incendiary glance
to have them fall in line
and follow, as if in a trance
she doesn’t seem to notice them
she never asks their names
she doesn’t visit long enough
to un-ignite their flames
