“The Unicorn” by Amanda C. Davis

“The Unicorn” by Amanda C. Davis

You never saw a unicorn.
It wasn’t really there.
The streak of white was just a flight of sunlight and a flare.
There never was a unicorn.
You wouldn’t ever catch it.
But how you ran and stretched your hand to touch it — there was magic.

Amanda C. Davis‘s poetry has appeared in Goblin Fruit and Not One of Us, among others.
