The Mag, The Moth and the Lamp

The Moth and the Lamp, Cesar Santos

Beautiful in death
She had no belief
In tales of dangerous desire
Drawn to the light
She perished by fire
Thanks for the challenge, Tess.

Gues we ALL like to look good "doing it" whatever "it" is...

Thanks for your succinctness. I have not mastered that, after 80 years of "trying"
