Poetry

The Magician’s Bedroom

A box of playing cards, premium print.

A corseted top hat with deep red hints.

A box of chips, yet no bag.

A unicorn doll, still with tag.

A mountain made from clothes

including socks with holes at the toes.

Cables, cables, wires and more!

A discarded table on the floor.

Three water bottles, sloshing about

Guarded well from being thrown out.

And peeking carefully into the gloom,

a wary guest too frightened to enter the room.
