The Part Where They Go to See the Witch
She lives away from the town.
It takes all day to go there, so when they get there,
there is darkness rolling in behind them
like a storm.
Please. I need the future
to be different than what I predict.
Change a body. Change my body.
Set new desire in a cooling heart.
Let what I want snake its way
through every circumstance.
Give me more time.
Cabinet. Cauldron. Cup.
She promises and laughs.
They ask, what’s so funny here,
and she just says,
soon enough, you’ll see.
