Magic flowed a river of printed words

meandering across ivory pages

passing up through grazing finger tips and

pulsing along a bloodstream

traveling deep into lungs and then

as air molecules flowing upward and 
his mouth between full lips.

Magic coursed into the space between us

as a river delta, pouring water into the sea

where I bathed in the warm current of

each magic word 
           he read to me.
