magic [poem]

image

I’ve been a witch
longer than I’ve been a human
this borrowed body
bleeds magic with every heartbeat
a constant ebb and flow of life
this mouth
wraps itself around explanations
of power and purpose
and poetry

I’ve been an animal
longer than I’ve been a witch
this spirit covered
in fur and feather and fin
but I needed a chance

to grow
to change
to become the ripple
in the cosmic ocean
that led to all this
magic
