Incantations

It could be Sunday,
the banks are shut
but it’s Monday
can you
spot the difference?
it may be diffidence on
their part
though I doubt it.

And as it could be Sunday
although it’s not
I’ll take pot luck and go out
sightseeing to somewhere
worth seeing,
but
she’s cast her spell
which makes me dwell
a little longer,
perversely
I feel weaker
when I’m stronger

that’s the magic.
