Bring on the Fire

So many things
All vying.

Essence, so understated, 
So subtle beneath them all.

Will the self-yearning reach a 
Critical mass one day?
Or do I prefer to stay, to play — 
Instead of to burn at the pyre?

Something wants to stay.
Something to go all the way.
Which has the louder say?

Bring on the fire.
Let it consume all traces of
Ego desire.
