The Incantation

The incantation is one which evokes flying to your lover where ever they are

The incantation

is one which evokes flying

to your lover

where ever they are.

 

It identifies

the properties of true love

like a litmus test-

unequivocal.

 

The incantation is from

dusty households where

statues cry milk

& girls bleed into women.

 

The incantation has been

animated by drought,

sighed in petit morte

& drawn by revolutionaries

in sunlit rooms.

 

The incantation is

studied by librarians,

dreamed of by prisoners

and lines forest hammocks.

 

It is a meme celebrating

the occult amongst city artists

but watch how it diminishes

with every writing

for it is a thing of the air,

not the pen…

 

The incantation is one

which evokes

flying with eyes shut

to your lover

where ever they are..
