Let me be Your Meta-Modern Magician

Then let me be your magician
Metamodern Metaphysician
Who
By sleight of hand
Distracts your from you forebrain conclusions

See . . . nothing up my sleeve
Persto-chango . . . still nothing
But this is a different kind of Nothing
The Buddhist they love that trick
So much ado about . . . nothing

When you are in the house of mirrors
Close your eyes and feel your way out
And please remember
I am not the guy who sold you the ticket

See . . . nothing in my top hat
Persto-chango . . . still nothing
But it looks like a bunny . . . you don’t like the cute bunny?
The Philosophers love that trick
Kept George Hagel going for months

When you are in the house of echoes
Close your ears and deny the nonsense
And please remember
I am not the guy who sold you the ticket

And this
My final trick . . . time
I would spend this darkness with you
Would commit the heresy of bending clocks
Salvador loved that trick
I would wait . . . here . . . in this darkness
It’s the only True Magic I know
