I Am Not

I am not the wick of the candle

Bearer of bad news.

Fire burning in the wax

Present you refuse.

I am not the melting of the wax

Production of all good.

Sadness that represents

Sculpted in wood.

I am not the feast that cures your aches

Nor the water that quenches thirst

I am the last one you think of

Because I certainly wasn’t first.

I am Summers bitter heat

Tender death within Fall

You foolish foolish people

I am the fire that started it all.
