Prestidigitation by Celia Turner

Poet Bio

Some train stations
are like churches—
bodies rather than souls
harrowing off towards
future or seeking past.

Airports may have chapels
but sell life insurance—
require cognitive dissonance
at 38,000 miles high
eating air at indigestible speeds.

Wherever we are
entangled, imagining
ourselves to be alone—
is the greatest impossibility
of all.
