Witch Pranks


Witch Pranks

When a witch at night goes 

walking with a witch, at times 
a black cat will appear and a
witch will pretend not to know. A witch 
will try not to cackle but will 
turn her head to not seem 
suddenly to be privy to pranks
and in looking serious will struggle to pretend she’s at peace against truth. 
To keep her promise to an elder, she’ll 
look at her own shadow, unknown 
at dark, an image she’ll force into something lionish in appearancestronger than 
very evil spells, a prank funnier than a small cat in a window, then reveal herself
A triple golden shovel poem using three vertical lines from Elizabeth Willis’s “The Witch”
