My Lamb Curry

i made a lamb curry tonight with
mint and butternut squash
soaked in coconut sun
orkney lamb with
marbled fat
like creeks
or veins
without
blood
but no
no magic
it should have
given itself to me
surrendered
its flavor
but no it
lacked magic
despite the mint
and constant affection
the music never played
magic never came
it just lacked
magic
