he was a ‘well-seasoned’ magic man

who came in

to entertain the youngest children

 while he wasn’t smooth

 his jokes and tricks and props and velvet

had been around a long time

the children loved every trick

opened their eyes wide with wonder

as doves and bunnies and coins and cards and wands and scarves

appeared and disappeared

in all kinds of unexpected places

 they eagerly

 volunteered to help him

 squealed and giggled and clapped with pure delight

until they lost their breath with laughter

he was a showstopper of the highest order

who had found the perfect audience.

i love her final gesture

and it made me give pause –

if i were to go today

i would leave behind the following things for others to enjoy:

$7.oo, a sock monkey, photographs, glitter, collage projects, letters and books.

i hope there is no fighting over the monkey.
