I'm kicking of this "fire saving series" with a poem that mentions setting fire to a house. My first poem to save from the fire is Jillian Weise's "Nikita's Indian Restaurant" from her book The Amputee's Guide to Sex. I love this whole collection and this poem has always stood out to me for many reasons. It's thought-provoking and surprising, which is always something good to have in a poem. It also has such a raw honesty to it that greatly appeals to me. I love poems that don't always say what you should, because most of us don't go through our lives saying or thinking the "right" things all the time. Probably most of us have wished for our significant other to stand up for us by lighting someone on fire at some point or another. It's also a great use of a pop culture reference. Check it out and then buy her whole collection. The poems in the book are all interconnected and help further inform each other.
