Why Does Enchantment Keep Wearing Off

why does enchantment keep wearing off,
you wondered to yourself, becoming too visible.
and this is the path or is not

where breakfast consists of a few rolls,
a morsel of fine cheese;
lukewarm coffee and the hum of bees

near the syringa.
I must be off again
you thought to yourself

in the bee laced breeze
seeing your fortune
slide into snowbanks

if action is not taken.

winter now.
Jack will sell the cow
for beans.
