Chalice Lighting: “Does the Match Love the Wick

Does the match love the wick?
Does the wick love the wax or the air it consumes?
without question."
To melt together,
To burn together,
To change together,
The pieces of the candle must love each other.
Though not necessarily wisely,
and not necessarily well.
