the orange dancer plays upon the candle wick.
watch how she twirls and chassés.
how gloriously executes her battements and brisés!
and all the while, she barely notices herself shrinking and diminishing.
how fervently she piqués, pliés and pirouettes!
she spins faster and faster and faster and-!
like all things, even the exquisitely flickering flame has her end.
