Alchemy- " Miraculous power of transmuting something common into something precious."
Webster's dictionary

The process is simple and mysterious,
the intersection of
science and art.

Blank screen, digital input
added to curiosity and caffeine
served warm.

Words, served later
ink thrown at a page by a disinterested machine
pages spat upon the floor without so much as a glance

Here I am, watching you reading them,
hoping for a smile or better,
a sharp inhale.
