the magic gets stuck inside
i choke on it
like a jagged chicken bone caught in my throat
nightly, i try to cough it up
a bit erupts from deep with my gut
lands on the page
and sticks

it turns to rot there
and i rot with it

i no longer weep for the empty pages
but for the choking pain
of the magic
still stuck inside
