Magic Tricks

I never stuck with magic,

I always quit

before I learned the tricks.

my hands were never fast enough

to do anything right away

and my eyes

could never see what’s always

been right in front of them.

All I could ever do was wear a cape,

but I wore it like a suit

and I could always

pretend I could fly.
