Fairy Dust (R) - Poem by Margaret Alice Second

Let me clothe this day in a new way - let me
stretch my legs on my desk as ballerinas I've
seen do so on tables and objects - & let me
touch my toes, do pliés, all of it while studying
agricultural regulations in Portuguese; drum

roll please: I called a scary text by its name,
the little alien in my head did not faint, quite
the contrary - he looks forward to ME doing
the translation into English as he plays with
Terry Pratchett's idea that belief's the factor

that brings the world into existence, and all
the stories and characters in it; today Peter
Pan - my brother in his British Neverland -
will learn that he is the hero in the Saga of
the Duchess and Alice fighting about their

theories of reality & truth the way they see
it - Peter Pan is the Duchess' champion &
now he shall be Alice's Don Quixote hero
also because he protected Alice's Wonder-
land from imploding - just as he keeps the

Duchess' dreams and his own Neverland
intact by creating his own universe where
he can fly and take Alice & the Duchess
with him - using the power of fairy dust -
