MAGIC

I want to perform some
magic; make a fountain
appear in the desert sand,
make a mountain turn to
nougat; defy gravity by
leaping from tree to tree,
or run faster than the
speed of dreams, or bend
the unbendable, or lift the
unliftable, or perhaps …
make those frightened men
who kill in vain to rid their
hearts of fear, to stop; to
lift their faces to light,
and to see … life.  Ah magic!
