Not a Phoenix

...And you realize you are not
a phoenix--
And that the fire that adorns you
consumes your flesh
And you twist and writhe
as it eats the scream 
from your mouth 

Yet at the core you are all of winter
Rage trapped beneath ice
Each movement needle-cold

Don't Move.  Don't dare.

Don't speak, 
lest you sear those around you
with your killing frost.
