Illusion

Winterlightning1013

 

I asked —

“Do you believe in magic?”

and he eagerly answered “yes,”

thinking his black and white dreams

were as polychromatic as mine.

 

I closed my eyes to pretend

his sleight of hand was enchanted

for as long as I could, but

there is no substitute for

lightning across a January sky.
