White Man's Magic

Eclipse (1962)

Larry Travis

a really wild and way out
witch doctor
sat tearing
	a paperback edition
of white man's magic
into small
		one
			word
				  bits
then put them into
an empty skull
to wait for the wind
to blow the little squares
	of white
with bold black letters
out of an empty		eye hole
and land on the smoky
ceremonial grass
sifted	symbols
