I drew a burning castle


I said to her

‘No idea what’s the meaning of a burning castle’

She replied


Sometime you will know


Sometime is now

What that stroke did to me

Is like a burning and pillaging 


Sometimes you will see


I see ...

Now I’ll see what?

That all is better now?


Sometimes you will heal


Are you joking?

Fine, some new places are opened now

but the burning hurt badly


Sometimes the question echoes

And the answer goes walk-about
