Marika Wasn’t Pleased

“Eureka!” cried the alchemist Nikita
who believed at last he’d found the secret
in the blast he’d just invoked – but Marika,
his assistant and his sister, wasn’t pleased:

she knew that her ecstatic brother
had been wrong in his surmise. He had
provoked the devil into opening its eyes.
Angrily awake, the devil sneezed.
