A fire

A fire blazed through the alcohol-induced-coma of a night
Illuminating the untrodden paths of this concrete wilderness,
Flashing momentary images of memories overexposed
The blinding sparks set ablaze a monumentally modern Rome

The flames rose over the sea of unassuming cosmopolites
Standing still being devoured indiscriminately together
This was the everlasting spectacle of Borax masochism
While Nero and his kin played jazz on hip hop beats

I saw my flesh melting down and bone and bone marrow
As I surrendered my heightened senses to outworldly oblivion
There will be no recollection of the demise of this contemporary empire
But all the scorched alleyways and graffiti and murals shall remain
