Match Poem

Take a match, any match
From any box you care,
Then strike it boldly.
Can you keep a grip
And not singe your fingers
As the wood burns away?
I can tell you how.
Keep the flame upright
So the head is first consumed
Hold the burnt remains
And invert
Hope the structure holds.
When all is charcoal,
Lick the edge of your hand
Stick the skeleton
Join hands, edge to edge
Press as hard as you can
Open, the verdict will be revealed.

If it parts
In two perfect halves
You my friend,
Are truly In Love.
