Rope Trick

The man on the balcony
raised a rope up into the air
overlooking wide expanse.

Up and up into the air
with nothing holding it up.
How did he do it?

Up from a coil of rope
Curled like a cobra
Rising up.
How did he do it?

Then he climbed
The strong vine
to the sky.

Clouds over trees,
Balcony behind,
The crowd stood wondering
"How did he do it?"
