#Cause: my poetic response to the #selfieforcharity popping up this week in aid of cancer awareness.

You are scarred,
a child too near the fireplace,
As if your proximity was,
by itself,
shameful.
As if this grand flame burns
for us all to ignore it.

Perhaps we should condemn the day
and grow nocturnal,
For who wants to watch
the spark that will end us catch.
Yet, somehow,
as your toes gather flecks of cooling ash, You, more than any other,
know how time has a way of romancing spite.

So, never mind our turquoise,
It is only brief,
and cold, slipping through our fingers. There is little solace in knowing
it is deep as any other blue.

You see,
we kiss in the rain
to forget we’re getting wet,
And all it’s taught us
is that rust follows every thirst.

So be contented with your rosy cheeks,
burnt, blistering, boiling,
As the hearth nears.

You have the glory of being blameless,
And alone.
For it is only you
and silence.

It will take too long to turn us to steam, and by then
we will be desperate enough
to welcome whatever fire
wants to consume us.

- Love Letter to a Red Planet, Ciarán Hodgers
