"Paris Burning"

Paris Burning

I write words to speak to you;
I know not how or who else
I can tell this to:

of the fragments that make you
and undo your vision, too.
The shrapnel in my eyes,
ears, nose and hands -

The order I was shot
I forget, and yet,
it blazes before me again.

I decode them here;
I deconstruct
into abstractions
to get to the heart.
