There's Gonna Be Eternal Life Not Just Recycling - Poem by RIC S. BASTASA

how candles
consume themselves
is not really
dramatic, it's normal
for candles to light
themselves
eat themselves
and then
just like that
melt and just be
nobody or
nothing, and

kids pick them up
again
remelted and shaped
into new
entities for sale,

and the buyers
too are like candles
consume themselves
in routine
buy what was
wasted

move on with their
lives
borrow light
and then too
die not in
hopelessness

there's gonna be
eternal life
not just recycling
