like smoke curling under the door.

Somebody’s going to get burnt soon.

  1. i liked the first line but not the second one…as then the whole of it is gives a feeling of prose…i think the second line should have better figures of speech…like burnt to the colour of smoke or brunt brown… or even using terms like roasted/toasted or coated to describe the effects of burning…

    1. @Ravishankar: Rather cliched that, don’t you think? I wanted to bring out a less familiar nuance of fire than the usual toast, roast, charred, ashes etc. Also, this originated on Twitter so it had to be within 140 characters.
