Gasoline & Fire (For Heidi)

Gasoline & Fire (For Heidi)

He was like that pinkish, pungent liquid:
So harmless looking; so full of useful intentions,
and yet as volatile as a dormant, churning volcano.
He was gasoline; with an intense, retching, lingering odor,
and always a heartbeat away from explosive disaster.

She was like that red, all-consuming element:
So natural and practical; so essential to life,
and yet as destructive as the most powerful earthquake.
She was fire; with a blazing, crackling, burning hunger,
and always a breath away from erupting into an inferno.

Like two magnets drawn together, only to suddenly flip
and shoot away from each other with a jerk of repulsion,
the gasoline man and the fire woman gravitated forward,
into each other's welcoming, passion-impulsive arms,
only to begin to fume and ferment into a high-pitched state
of unimaginable, unendurable, universal conflagration.
The ensuing explosion rocked the heavens, shook the stars,
and flattened the Earth with uncontrollable power.
And, as the hot, smoking ashes drifted down in the aftermath,
the gasoline man and the fire woman lay leveled, broken
and burned, with dizzy heads filled with hot, molten lead,
and solemn vows muttering from dry, bleeding lips:
"Never again! Never again! Never again!"
