Eviction Notice

You can’t douse me in kerosene
Fill my pocket with brittle kindling
Throw a pack of struck matches at it
Then act surprised when sparks fly

You can’t dust my guts with gunpowder
Serve me Molotov cocktails
Then be shocked when I go off

How wildflower
Petals had spread

Now it is locked
Twisted and clicked-in
Spun past
All combination

This landmine love
Ready to blow
