Those Who Can (Magnetic Fields)

What if you have the gift of listening—knowing—so when you hear

We don’t have to be stars exploding in the night, or electric eels under the covers
We don’t have to be anything quite so unreal, let’s just be lovers

the alchemic achievement lifts you, holds you, sends you back down for more

like breath, like a child who has learned to swing?

Do you then imagine you can cast those spells, that reading so well means you might also write?

Try it. Open a page. Lower your hands and blink twice. Bring all your talent and luck.
