Golem

Golem

On a slip of paper
a child writes 'aardvark'
Folds it in half and inserts
into the mouth
of a clay creature
his parents brought back from Prague.

Nothing happens.

He removes the paper,
looks for the next word in the dictionary,
and begins the process anew.
If there exists a word in English
that will work the magic
he will find it.
