"Duty And The Two Candles"
Finally, after all the singing, all the dancing
and all the pleading with the Deities,
it was time to return to the Everyday.
One by one, she took down the four altars,
satisfied with their ability to absorb the mysterious
along with the mundane.
She couldn't help but admire the last two candles
with their majestic height and virgin white color
encased in glass.
Though they looked identical
she noticed how one candle was silent,
while the other one shook freely.
Puzzled, she drew each to her ear
to try to uncover their mystery.
"I Know What Is Expected Of Me"
one candle said stoically,
while the other candle whispered,
"i always leave room for the Divine."
