That Girl Is On Fire

Summer spits fire pellets as she walks down the cement
Hitting the ashy heels of every person passing by.
She slaps them across the cheek,
leaving a streaming hand printed along the jawline.

Review Request (Intensity): 
I want the raw truth, feel free to knock me on my back
Review Request (Direction): 
What did you think of my title?
How was my language use?
What did you think of the rhythm or pattern or pacing?
How does this theme appeal to you?
How was the beginning/ending of the poem?
Editing stage: 


very physical scene, very interesting personification of a quite angry summer, a sun punishing us, slapping us and leaving a mark on jawbones, each of us.
We'll see today if the moon can tame this girl tomorrow as she gets upstaged by a eclipse!

I'd rather learn from one bird how to sing
than teach ten thousand stars how not to dance
ee cummings

match sticks
like the hot sun
they burn
petrichor only cools em

lovely fire
wish i could also
fulfill my desire
