The Wizard of Oz

Your new thing
is The Wizard of Oz
except for the parts
with the wicked witch
because you tell me

she’ll make you dead

but you like pointing to the characters
and what they all need

courage
a heart
a brain
a home

I ask you what you need
and you tell me more puzzles

but then you say
no no
frantically
as if I might be a wizard
and you’d wasted your wish

I need a zebra actually

you say
and then you look at me
as if wondering for the first time
if there are things
I cannot do.
