artistic venture

by Jared Fladeland

i watch my child
getting licked with flames

soaked in kerosene

crying in agony

getting thinner by the second

as i sit in the front yard
on a concrete brick,

and i study his emotion.

Brutal, almost terrifying stuff. Well done.

Startling, and then I try to imagine that mind. Thanks for a nudge into a scary part of us.
