Sleight of Heart

It’s magic

Not the good kind

Not Houdini

Not even Disney

It’s the tablecloth trick

You grip the edges

(I don’t expect a thing)

You snatch

RIP! the sound

It’s not smooth

Not impressive

The linen follows your fists

Into the air

Dragging with it

The china

The silverware

Our future

It all shatters

On the green tile floor

You laugh

I cry

It’s magic.
