the Trick to Magick


magic is unique,

if you want to 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

prest*O, change*O

or may damage pipes

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

. . .

(bring duct tape along, just in case)


Of course, you might try

bypassing the wardrobe,

and go in through the bathroom window, instead.

Wielding just enough Windex to provide clarity

(to see the neighboring yard)

the greener grass of which is downright Narnian–


(pack pocket with binocKs, just in case)


and if it’s kite-free weather,

and houses are grounded

no woRRies!

(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, too,

–just not a DeLaurean–

(stow a go-bag, when you do, just in case)


but the best


by far

is howling at the moon

since any-where-girl worth her hide knows

you can shortcut it to Oz

~along the rainbow bridge~

skipping black & white altogether

to travel in

Technicolor style

. . .


Keep in mind the trees you can’t see

for the forest

have a helluva reach, though,

and if Kansas is your starting point,

bring apple ammo along, also

. . .

you know

. . .

(just in case)
