Please Explain

I haven’t figured it out yet-
have you?
It’s a trick that only you would know–
much like the inorganic chemist said
today when he turned something
non-carbon based into something
and he thought he was God
and so did the audience
And then the sun set in the Grand
Canyon, according to the precocious
And I, I waited for the explanation
until magically
I knew
without you telling me…

“And how did that happen?” you ask.
And I looked at you one more time
to be sure
And then I smiled and
moved away
so someone else could have a turn.
