the way you move

Poetry by Chris Miner, Spring & Summer 2017


the way you move is so legit

as if wildfire had intention
as if it thought to itself,
       I’m gonna dance
       and burn
       all over this earth

but wildfires don’t have intention
that’s why they’re wild
they just burn and they burn 

and you,
you just dance and you dance
you burn and you dance
