Magician **A Poem**


Writing is this awful spell
I cannot dispel
My pen skates across paper ice
A magic wand I use to cast
Symbols for syllables
Incantation I can’t find
To tamp down the creative high
No illusionary trick
Numbs the pain
I saw myself in half
While pulling words
From a hat to make
Me disappear
I wrote this for November's PAD challenge when I was thinking about the highs and lows of art.
Let me know what you think!
