is
a
tall
thin
candle
in the
middle
of the
world
in a
cavern
large
and
dark
where
you
can't
see the
walls
----
its wick
lit
long
ago to
burn
and
burn
to
breathe
like
soft
wings
to flutter
gently
at the
top
of the
middle
of the
world
---
the
flame
settles
gravity

onto the
mass
of the
world's
outer
shell
like
massive
invisible
hooks
pulling
inward
(downward)
from the
soft
wet
busy
world
--
and
on the
inside
a mild
wind and
sound of
a small
dripping
its echo
full and
distant
-
darkness
wholesome
save for
one
small
light
burning
at the
top? is it?
