I will die
with escrowed spells
the lawyers steal
their tongues slithering
in sad attempts
to roll their
the magic slips
onto the floor
where the woman
bejeweled in light
will fly tomorrow.

This is absolutely stellar writing 😀 So much to love here especially; “tasting dust bejeweled in light.” Thank you so much for writing to the prompt ❤️❤️
You picked a word I’ve noticed is in MANY of my poems looking back, but I couldn’t help but use it again, thanks for hosting, Sanaa!
What a bewitching spell this is: tasting dust
bejeweled in light.

Thanks, Dwight! Magic is often found in the most unlikely places! ✨🧹

A swirl of words and witchery, truth, bitterness, revenge..

I love “escrowed spells” and the way this unfolded. To sweep up magic could be wonderful or a curse!
True, and that sparks more ideas with the possibility of a curse! Thanks, Merrill! ❤️🙏❤️
