Vanish


Vanish

 Watch the silent shuffle reflected in my eyes
The white of well-thumbed cards fanned
In a low-lit spiral. Queens of red, knaves
of coal caught on the wind suspended
in a loophole, hidden between your gasp
and sigh. Step into the box, slide
against the panel, let me secret you away.
I smile and utter the ancient words
to make you disappear.
