The text holds back somewhat from need, by demanding, and offering, the real: that which it does not have and which cannot be possessed or given. The real is embodied in the poem as love, love identified with death, the "ace" (in the hole, end and beginning). This is the ace of all desire, fed by the smoke and flame of this exhausted fire.
