unburned (the clowns of privilege)

Poi s’ascose nel foco che gli affina

Then he hid in the fire that refines/improves him

~

what kind
of fire
will improve a person

none
that they will
willingly
submit to

shaping comes
despite
a person’s wishes

some people
will never
be improved

believing the fire
is intended to burn
someone else

they do not recognize
when their own
boots
are rising smoke

when the moment
for meaningful change
is open
to them –
beckoning

the clowns
of privilege
and entitlement

from cradle
to grave

clowns
unburned
