Upon Re-Entry

Orbit adjusted
committed to vector
no heat shields left
 
But nevertheless
I am committed
to re-enter
 
First the wings
burn from the ends
embers trim proud feathers
 
Then each limb
chars and glows
bone smolders  
 
Within sight of cooling bliss
the trunk shortens
like a cigarette in the wind
 
Left is only the head
trailing spark
after hair burns obscenely
 
Such purifying glow
a streak in the twilight..
Love lures another
 
Victim to the Flame....
