Magic Spell

Magic Spell
All those burning sticks
I want to throw back
on the dusty picture at the corner
of the room

where everything is pieced together
in the arbitrary geometry of the shadow,
with a sense of small moments
preserved in between,

creating a new way of making
my faint memory alive.
not forgetting that
the sliced moon ,

dancing on the rooftops tries
to understand and find
at a moment’s notice
that remembers what it means

to reinvent and exploit
the magic spells within
the cotton wool of love,
soaks in withered and white
knots and in folded wings.
