The magician.



A good magician

can gather a crowd.

Stunnded by their tricks,

people applaud when they bow.


But when the show’s over

and the curtains go down,

people gather their things

form a line and get out.


No one cares to meet

the person behind the act.

No one sticks around when

the magician takes off his hat.


It’s the momentary thrill they’re after

and then they’re gone

and then they vanish.


Now there’s the real magic.
