by Avra Margariti

Published in Issue No. 265 ~ June, 2019

The magician pulls a rabbit out of his hat.

The rabbit pulls a magician out of hers.

The hat turns upside down,

swallows the magician,

devours the rabbit.

When it burps, a flock of gray doves flies out,

their wings flapping like a deck of cards

being shuffled.
