"My ninth grade biology teacher taught me that some trees need fire to survive
and so maybe it’s okay to burn down sometimes,
when he says he’s leaving and your hair catches fire from the tip of his cigarette,
when things fall apart and your bones smoke through your skin,
when harsh words blaze your throat
