Let it burn

he gift wraps his fears

his arms stretched out
in front of him
he carries them
treading gently
with short and
shallow breath

careful not to break them
he lowers them onto
the altar of his love

it is a meagre offering
but please
let it burn with
cleansing flames and a
proud pillar
of smoke
