The Magic is Not in The Hat -Written Monday 26th June 2000 (Aged 25)

The Magic is Not in The Hat

the magic is not in the hat
and it is not in the words
the ones that create a landscape
and yet, leave you scared
the magic is not in the cliched eyes
or a cliched touch
it is a feeling,
a feeling that is always enough
the magic is not in the hat
because without you, the magic is gone
and i am waiting for it to come back
it is not in my hold
and it is not not in the vision of my brain
the beauty is not from the meadows
or even the nature of your frame
the magic is not in the hat
and it is not to do with circus tricks
you have been away for a while
and you are sorely missed
come back and help me raise a smile




James Garratt – Monday 26th June 20000
