maybe and then perhaps not do I believe
all in all magic probably needs an a & l to make it real
god is the likeliest source – wholly on a high
inverse of course summons something terribly black
conjuring the uncanny with decapitated hens
against such shadows there are spellbinding scenes
longlasting enough for love to alight

Coming up with an acrostic after Franks prompt this week and written for Paul’s Poetics: Magic

    • a good comment Beth – thank you. The opening line sets the ambivalence as magic has a dark side but as adjective it goes along with all the mystical magical occasions including falling in love ❤
