Life's Work

     That image:
mythically,
        a few moments--
               The sun comes up,

                        even magical moments--
     a sleight of hand.

I stole words from the page (91) to which I randomly opened the first book I grabbed off my bookshelf (The Ballad of John and Yoko by the editors of Rolling Stone, 1982) and created a magical poem for Mama Zen’s prompt to the Real Toads: VOODOO
