These Candles, Our Bodies

These candles, our bodies, see how they burn.

How many hours will they last-days,months,
years?

Look at the warmth and comfort we can give
to each other or to anything that comes close.

One of the components of lasting art is a spirit
flame within the created

that can ignite inspiration and hope, and survive
time’s ways
