- ...from a very long distance.

Decasia, by Bill Morrison

I looked out the window,
	Saw myself burning,
		In the wind,
			Like a straw hat,
		With no strings,
	And no straws.
	As it were,
		Gave fire the space,
			To burn and wither,
				As it were meant to be.

An innocent look > who would look away?
	A gentle step > who would turn away?

		That set the buildings on fire.
	Oh, mama said,
		Don't play with fire,
			Or you will get burnt.
	But he looked and looked,
		And saw nothing but little beads,
			That shone like glaring pearl...
And nobody was there to play with him.

				That his wife no longer sits.
