More Lessons from My Father

Noah Stetzer


Nothing in a movie’s first ten minutes
is there by accident; always carry
your wallet; firm handshake every time;
only spend what you can afford; and watch
the magician’s “other” hand—not the right
hand held high with its fingers open wide,  
look to the one down at his side: the left
palming a coin—there’s where you'll see the trick.
