Ode to impulsive

Striking like a matchstick
flames and sparks
Everywhere
Sometimes the heat is 
too intense
Sometimes the light
is blinding
Here!
There!
Back again, over and around
and like the popping of corn
in a hot pan
one pop is lost for the sound
of all
But the finished corn is good
and I murder it down
with great enjoyment

As I enjoy the popcorn of my mind
why just have one kernel?
when you can have a bowl
-although one kernel represents
the perfection of it all - 
No!
I say
because the popcorn is all the same
Yes!
I say
because the purpose is the same
