The Magic Words | A Poem by Michael Kagan

A gazelle
Leaping
In a herd of human expression
Fleet of foot
A golden bird
Just found the words of fable
That could sew our world back together
In a silken bag
tied to a balloon
floating over our heads
And even if we caught it
And spelled the whole thing out
Who’s left
Clear enough
To pronounce the perfect words
