Anthi Is a Magician
Anthi Is a Magician – But Her Magic Is Real
If magic is an art, then magic may be the highest form. But like every art, there is good magic and out-of-this-world wizardry. Keiichi Iwasaki is one of the latter; an artist that also speaks at least seven languages, including Japanese, English, Spanish, Italian, Bulgarian and German. I bet that he speaks a few others, but I did not find anything to attest to it.
Magic uses various types of trickery to fool us into believing what we are perceiving. Is love a kind of magic that also deceives us, filling our minds with positive impressions that come out in our chests as unsurmountable feelings which require proximity and all five senses to become temporarily satiated? Magicians die as magicians; lovers die when love dies.
Anthi, my Anthi, is a magician. She can wrap me around any of her lovely fingers, finding me always hoping for more. She only has ten fingers, but luckily she also has ten toes. A score of paths to both her mind and her chest, where the sky is never the limit, since she can sail in space and visit any of the planets and even be welcomed by the Sun.
Her deck of cards is all hearts and her sleight of hand has no stratagem. Her scarf is always a scarf, but she can change its colour(s) to blue and white. She is also a mentalist to a certain degree, able to decipher any runaway thoughts. Her smile can melt any stance and misunderstanding, and her beauty can rival every type of wisdom.
Dear, Goddess Athena: I beseech you to always keep her safe and in charge of her life. Thank you, Goddess, for making me a part of her existence! Thank you, Athena, for giving me the strength to follow the path that led me into her bosom and her mind! Thank you, Goddess Athena, for helping us find each other in this harsh world.
