Nigel Crumpworthy, Detective and Wizard for Hire

Do you want magic?
Very well – observe closely. 
There is a window.


It is quite curtained.
We are not outside. The lights
are all out in here.


It is deep midnight.
Now, look hard at the window.
What do you see? Drapes?


Drapes. Dimly floral,
quite likely hideous
in daylight. Just drapes.


Then, alakazam!
The curtains flung wide and look
the Dog Star blazing


and a trillion
other suns: distant beyond
all comprehension,


all unreachable,
but there, (right there), visible.
What a mystery!


And as it happens,
Mystery is my forte.
I charge by the hour.
