scented with rose petals.
Mara’s cousin made it as a gift.
We witches met to talk about hexes
in our Pagan discussion group.
Instead we light a love candle.
We light it for souls who may be lost
after their plane was shot down,
and for their sad families.
And for the shooters? Can’t quite
manage that yet, but we ask for them
that they may look into their own souls.
We never think to send a hex.
