poetry and prose about place

ordinary magic

ordinary magic


small blue jar

emptied of face cream

reveals a false bottom when held to the light

a bright inverted inner shell

hovers untouchable


the peel of an orange

spurts flammable oil

cantrips of fire


press a shell to your ear

murmur of ocean
