Double, double, toil and trouble;
Fire burn, and cauldron bubble.

                            – William Shakespeare (Macbeth)

I’ve forgotten.
One cup of wine or two?
And why harvest

only one newt’s eye?
Shouldn’t two better spice
this brew?

Boiling is best, but upon
what fire dare I set this kettle?
Perhaps flame dancing

on a heap of willow wood

or the heat rising
from a pool of dragon spit.

And once this charm
is firm and good,
shall I serve you under

a moon’s dim light
or where shine glitters
on a rill of water

trickling near a moss as soft
as an old beard stitched
to a dead king’s chin?
