Sleight of Hand


A doe-eyed rabbit out of a hat
coloured ribbons, magic bubbles
all tumble out of your
dreamsleeves tonight

kisses in the wind,
the soupcon of a caress
daylight dims for a
Chinese shadow play.

A sleight of hand
one shadow, then another,
climb up a moonbeam
vanishing into the night.
