Kupala

If I told you
There was a land
Between the forest
And the sea
Where they mark
A day like this

By carving their sorrows
Onto grains of rice
And spilling them
Into the embers
Of a witchwood fire

And I told you
When the ash rises
From the flames
They turn their faces
Upwards
And wait for it to land
On their skin

And they don’t
Even flinch
From the heat
Of their sorrows

Would you ever
Be the same
Again?
