Random Poem:

learning to drive

at 14 i started a fire
in the field where i would learn to drive.
later i walked the same route home, surprised
to find i'd burned down a building.
passing blinking lights and yelling sirens,
i made myself a promise.
now twice as old,
i work with buildings,
but am yet to build one.
