Modern Magic~by Paul F. Lenzi



Modern Magic


Untitled Painting by Steve Capiz

yellow gold powder-pressed tablets

compressed with soft secrets of time

slay the dragons who roost in the mind

restore balance to an unbalanced brain

counteract deep depressive disorder

square upright the bent psychic shoulders

to stand above legacy shame left by injury

sapping the confident pride of a long ago

powerful life of ebullient existence

a hunched haunted soul now revivified

owing to modern arcane pharma-chemical

harvest of biomolecular magic solutions
