Alphabet Soup Minuscule

J.C. Scheff

The Spark

I am only this city, where you have begun to settle.
I am of no central size, or importance.
Yet, you have surveyed me, and
Drawn lines around me to state your rights of these boundaries
Claim them as yours.
Come and build your home here,
Plow your fields, and plant your seeds,
So there is no uncertainty, or question.
That you have ignited me like no other.
You are the spark that burnt down Chicago,
And quickly, you melt every piece of my form, my structures.
Breaking the safe that was around this heart,
Not to destroy, but to irreversibly change this conurbation.
Release your heat, and watch as I burn.
