01 – The Magician 

The artists, the poets,
the builders of the world
have a thing or two
in common
with the Magician.

So does everyone
with a skill to peddle
and a story to tell.

But there’s another
side to this
consummate creator:
sometimes,
you gotta
fake it till you make it.

Oh, you know
that you have the tools
and you’ve practiced
your act to perfection
but when the curtain rises,
are you ready?

Will you ever be?

So you rely
on the work
and the time
and the tools
and if you flub
a line or miss a cue,
go forward
like you always
meant to do that.
Even if nobody’s watching.

Maybe especially
if nobody’s watching.
