Wick & Wax

Papa tries to explain to Sukha
How the candle works and why the wick
Needs the wax, the wax the wick to burn.

Sukha is five and loses interest
In the explanation well before
It gets anywhere near to the heart

And well before she loses interest
In observing the candle gutter.
Papa wonders which is he, which she.
