witch conception


do gypsies have crying spells

their tears turning into magical notes

falling on their cymbaled finger tips

creating sad songs which are riddled with regret

sung by a chorus full of clowns and kings with crooked crowns

while jesters joke at the broken hearted


do gypsies look past the future in crystal balls

do dreams become shattered when they are thrown against walls

shards of glass shaped into Moons and stars

dangle from deaf ears, cut throbbing pulses that lie beneath

the lie beneath

lips that kiss while they speak

oh the belief in Love and  they sell

presently given to gypsies

who now cast crying spells
