“Flame” Poem of the Day (2023)


By Ashley O’Hare

Did you know

flames tinted blue

are hotter than

those recklessly red?


it’s supposed to be

a peaceful hue.

It’s supposed to

make me trust you.

My teachers really

failed me on this one.


kept the wolf safe

with the sheep.

Now it’s all I can do

to weep

silently into my pillow.

Instead of finding sleep,

I’m endlessly counting the sheep.
