Don’t Buy Cheap Witchpowder

 

Don’t Buy Cheap Witchpowder

a mortal’s attempted enchanting of a 
witch with Walmart witchpowder 
can (or may) boomerang a toxic 
charm and be lethal snake’s 
milk in a hidden fang 
from a witch’s tooth in a deathly smile, 
an incantation of a venomous backfiring – like an ax in a girl’s back, its bloody
handle swathed in golden locks of hair

A Double Golden Shovel poem using two vertical lines from Elizabeth Willis’s “The Witch”
