A candle is made of paraffin wax, made of petrol.


By heating in the absence of air the amorphous carbon is converted into polycrystalline graphite.


Light up again.


A candle is a spine that holds all our bodies.


Bend your arms, according to
the rules of art — deep — it is a moulding.


Light up again.


Our bones are the last to melt away.
