The fire is red as blood. I watch the flames go up in the air as I taste the sadness of the people whose houses have burnt to the ground. I turn back, but all I hear is the bursting and explosion of flames.
Definitely stands out next to Christopher’s lame seashell poem and Skylar’s lazy Parakeet one. Gabi meanwhile is bearing the blackness of her soul like a screwed up Vietnam veteran or something. A+ effort.
