Licking Flames

I once would stand
Eyes afixed.
Head nodding.
Tongue in check.
Swallowing catalysts
For uncomfortable scenarios.
And you would spew
the preachiest of hints
On exultation.
Maybe because you knew
Full well that I would listen.
But I’m not patient.
Where did you get that idea?
I’m not that man.
Not anymore.
