Up In Smoke

I idly toss each page,
carelessly torn asunder
from a mundane novel into a fire
that is roaring with the thunder
of lovers in its opening lines.
Flames, like hearts, leap even higher,
until discovered by the husband,
who, enraged,
would have trashed that page
if he could.
That is well understood.
So I did it for him.
Made a paper plane
to fly into the hearth.
Black smoke enveloped,
doused the flames they’d made,
ripped out the one
where he stuck a blade
plucked from beneath his coat,
Into the throat of the guy
who was desperately trying to lie
his way out of a tricky situation,
while waving bye bye.
Thick blood flowed.
Fire spat, then hissed.
The wife threw herself
onto her dying lover,
smothering him in kisses,
flailing her arms,
beating the floor
with the palms of her hands.
Cold draughts blow through
as I toss that page on cinders,
while pretending I’d not seen,
or read the end.
I know how it went,
with one final cold kiss,
but you won’t,
so many pages missing
