"A brief book of spells [October]" - Owlglass


Watch Benjamin Christiansen's 1922 film

   Haxan, or Witchcraft Through the Ages


walk through morning grass threaded with cold dew


listen to an album of fifteenth-century lullabies,

   the soft voice drifting from another room


read Cities of the Red Night by William Burroughs


admire the spider's orb hanging from the porch roof


feel against your skin the worn wool of a favorite sweater



.  .  .
 
 
Another sort of spell:
 
notice the twin bumper-stickers in the grocery store parking lot
 
 
I   THE CONSTITUTION
 
and
 
CHRISTIANS FOR RELIGIOUS FREEDOM
