the last match

in my hand
i hold a match
the last match
from the box
dare me to light it
see what will burn

your soft lips
surround my dare
contain the fire
inside and invite
residual heat

into a room
once cold
into a room
once hidden
behind a curtain
slide aside

open the door
discover all
the other matches
unused
waiting to be lit
