Little Wizard

you replay
crouching behind
a tricycle and surprising
me with your collected “love potion”
swirling leaves and flowers and petals
“you will fall in love tita mel!” you shouted
showering me in your wish. then once more for you.

    Jerry and I wandered the dusty road from Balasan to Estancia yesterday afternoon. As I was taking photos I noticed Jerry crouched behind a tricycle hiding.

    He sprang out laughing and showered me in torn leaves and tiny petals. “Love Potion!” he shouted in excitement, “now you will stop taking photos and fall in love!”.

    Funny little man.
