the Trick to Magick


magic is unique,

if you want hocus-pocus

sometimes you have to look at the big picture

–not found in TV stores—

and dig yourself a new hole

a gofer it hole that may lead to Wonderland


or may damage pipes

–you can’t know until you wave that magic shovel

(bring carrots along just in case)

bypassing the wardrobe to

go in through the bathroom window,

convincing Windex to provide just enough clarity

to see the neighboring yard

the green of which is downright Narnian–


bring Turkish Delight along just in case,

keeping the bigger destination in mind

(don’t look too far)

and if it’s kite-free weather,

and houses are grounded

–not to worry!

(be happy)

There are yet options

–a wind machine dba portable fan works

>in a pinch<

a droptop drive in the country

does the trick in time,


–just not a DeLaurean—

but the

best-second-best by far

is howling at the moon

(s’cuse me, baying)

since any were-girl worth her hide knows you can shortcut it to Oz

along the rainbow bridge—

skipping black & white altogether

to travel in

technicolor style

but the trees you can’t see for the forest have a helluva reach,

and Kansas only Thomas Guide text, anymore,

so bring apple ammo along, also,

you know

(just in case)
