He asks me,
is this world's ordinary not extraordinary enough
how would one miracle more be a cure for your incessant longing?
but in that sneery way he has of always being right
so right away I turn away
unwilling to quite accept his flayed refrain
its insult contained in the idea that I could
- like taking some kind of potion -
that I should
twist my heart and mind and notions
refine myself until I feel
- actually feel -
complete and joyously ecstatic,
to only ordinary magic.
