six ingredients,
twenty-six-and-a-half hours
later, some kind of

magic, the sort that comes with
patience and determination

nine times out of

nine times out of
ten, magic
can be discovered
in the backyard.
eight times out of
ten, it’s for the

consider that we
are not magicians – we cannot
conjure a feeling

with a mere word – when the welcome

is not for you, you feel it

sooner or later,

sooner or later,
or for some time already,
we will find ourselves
in the same shoes, one
against the faceless
many who conjure
corporate legalese
that secures them
a place at the table –
in the board room,
we are all little men,
forgetting
and unforgetting
we do this to ourselves

ride – i stare out the window,
penn station to penn station,

new york city to
baltimore, the moving pictures
shimmer, cast long spells

die as magically as
we lived – let every

autumn be a reminder,
every memory, a test

together, the minutes
are spun inside each

staying magical

staying magical
takes effort. to turn every
eighth word into a

seed, be intentional, listen
closely, accept new feelings

we are peering into

we are peering into
the montauk of my
mind, mostly
squishy, unformed
and uninformed,
waiting for the
right kind of magic
to pull it out
whole, with wings,
ready for flight
