Like Magic: Day 7 Poem

Slight of Hand

flip and twist, a beckon
one thing, then another
always a shift, of hand
of eye, keep me guessing
don't let on, reveal nothing
reveal everything, pause
keep me waiting, manipulate
your fingers, cunning, palm
trick me once, trick me again
I fall for it, easily, hopeful
slowly learn, ignore the twinge
recognize I've been fooled

Today's prompt at Not Without Poetry is from Mike Ferguson, and it included this short movie. It was amazing how quickly this poem came. Raw, very raw.
