Flame Vessel

A flickering candle flame with a piece of the wick that resembles an artery.

Hestia alight,
candle’s wick an artery
anchoring these prayers
beyond the raging ocean,
its form embering hollow
like slow-cooked stew meat
whose veins once pumped a cow’s blood.
Feeding life through fleeting life:
each, devoured, transforms.
