Walk the fire

Don't, he had warned
walk the fire-pit in front
of the devils who play God
and wait for you to beg

Mercy doesn't come in batches
not in shreds
not even in drops
don't wait for others to stop staring at your feet

as you take off your shoes
and trod onward
embers glowing
at your feet

Don't walk the fire-pit
for the devils, because
people who walk the fire
forget that they burn their soles.
