The candles never go out
unless a dog is barking
at a butterfly
when the butterfly answers
the dog keeps barking
it doesn't understand
or doesn't want to
and no matter how hard
you try you cannot 
even strike the match
slipping from your fingers
you cannot light the candle
you cannot listen and you cannot see
