At A Contest


At a Contest Of Magical Skill and Exposition

by Roger Fritz, 1968



A magician was asked for, in a slighting fashion,
as one would ask for a miracle from a holy man,
expecting nothing,
and then to suddenly have roses
blossom out of the air
and drop in the meats and casseroles
would be disconcerting.
The magician who answered the request
was quite as disconcerting.
He ballooned air from a hat
and sailed out canaries, birds of every color,
unwound a waterfall upside down,
got cracked eggs to sort themselves out and
seal their contents into the past.
The suspicion that real magic was involved
panicked the people through the streets.
They turned their locks in a
battery of final clicks,
leaving on the stage,
alone,
the magician,
who had been saving his real magic for last.
