starting again

at fifty

I scrape

every last bit

of peanut butter

from the jar

their brooms

broken and burned at the stake

the witches

assemble at the village gate

to exact a gruesome vengeance


there are spells

we learned from the old ones

herbs on the fire

the chant deep and low ...

'the devil take your soul'

the birch and maple

have given up their leaves

while I remain cocooned

in memories
