Devil in the Question

hands wring. there is
no sound of bells
only the swish of red pens
scouring for the rogue syllable.

can a flame be forced from a candle?

can emotion be measured in a breath?

the answer does not lie
amongst academic musings
but in a heart, daring to journey
and connect with its soul.
