slight of hand


Sleight of hand (also known as prestidigitation or legerdemain) is hand methods and finger techniques used by performing artists in many art forms to entertain or manipulate. . . . (Wikipedia)

Prestidigitation, I practice daily. The sleight of hand to create me each morning; to erase me every night.

Year of my birth. Good year for automobiles; bad year for babies. The cars are considered classics; the baby, derelict. Oh, that legerdemain might alter the outcomes. That I would be the classic, and the cars, derelicts.

Written for Just Jot It January, hosted by Linda G. Hill @ life in progress. January 25: prestidigitation, suggested by Pamela @ Butterfly Sand
