I learned my first magic trick today
sure, I gained one more trick up my sleeve
to pull any time I am desperate for attention
which is most of the time
and I only have so many weapons
so it’s good to stock up the arsenal.
Still, I feel like a little kid after hearing there’s no Santa
learning there’s really no magic
like the lady never really gets sawed in half
there is another set of legs sticking out of a second box
kicking me straight in the head
opening my eyes wide
to find believing in the trick
is the trick
and it’s more fun to be tricked
than to trick.
I wonder if God made us in His image
if He ever believed in magic.
