Magic

The man reversed the sixteen wheel lorry
down an alley with no-one helping him.
The lady at number 31 grew plants from the ground.
The sky was above all of our heads
with nothing supporting its weight.
A bird grabbed a worm without touching the floor.
ASDA had a broccoli.
Two strangers high-fived.
A baby found his nose when asked where it was.
Cats existed. Dogs existed. You existed.
The walls didn’t cave in for a bit.
