Poem: Sheet Magic

by Debi

We have been called witches
we who can fold fitted sheets
as if it were true magic
or some fearful feat of sorcery

I never knew
people had trouble
folding fitted sheets

it’s like I’ve always known

But someone
some when
must have taught me

An almost memory
folding sheets with my mother
line up the corners like this
tuck them in like this

What we’ve learned
or were carefully taught
may appear as magic
to the uninitiated
