Magic can only exist
within the preponderance of nonmagic

The welcome mat as hoverboard
but not the whole farm

Not the whole meadow

Not the summer
but an instant that you have
passed through

The man with the slow brown dog
limping along after him
leashless as the man
puts a red watering can
to the pansies beneath the window

This is the place
you learn
so that you can leave it

  1. Full of profundity, Hannah. Wonderful use of details such as the red watering can and slow brown dog.
