Backfire by Ellen Reich

Terror in eyes that shone back vermillion
A child alone, frozen by wild-fire
My house is burning down
My mama’s boss he say
The fire won’t get bad
He say for her to stay at work

Terror in eyes that shone back vermillion
A child alone, frozen by wild-fire
My house it burned down
The fireman he say
We’re saving the water
He say for the houses not burning
