Nathaniel’s Magic

What Nathaniel does is cajole people into forgetting

everything that is horrible about them.

In the interim

he loots their souls,

at the pretence of geniality.

Without being too harmful, to his credit.

But I hate magicians who pretend that their magic is real.

Or maybe I simply envy them.
