Tribute to a Witch


Dark and jagged rocks

add overalls and fluffy frocks

newt eyes and frog legs

chicken bones and billboard pegs

simmer and sizzle

Pterodactyl from an archaeologist’s chisel

Neanderthal blood and marrow

mixed with the breath of Tutankhamen the pharaoh

stir in a clay vase and bury in the ground

twenty-one days thereafter swallow it down

nine months later

the return of the Magical Creator.
