I Hold With Those Who Favor Fire

So you called me again tonight
after calling me earlier
to tell me you couldn’t call me
that often anymore
because my voice is too intimate
and my poetry is too good
and you’re trying to figure out
what it means to be good.
I respect your space,
your multiple needs,
many of the conflicts are mutual indeed,
but I also respect
that you called today twice;
our world will end in fire,
not ice.
