Fire Spirits Valentine

All cacti and most
Succulents conform
To the forms of fire
Like snowflakes to cold
Air and moisture
Because everything is burning
Where they have to survive
Like glass blown and flowing
Into individual sketches
Of conflagration
At different moments
In the life of summer
They don’t long for leaves
When they can carry such flowers
They don’t want to be trees
