he is an unreliable narrator of perception
weaving an intricate web of woe
a distorter of lies; artist of deception
cloaking clues and hollow hints in looking glass 
seducing his patrons with the allure of reflection
heroes and villains appear on the scene 
swiftly dispersed in a myriad of directions
his audience swoons as chaos ensues 
oh, how he yearns for eternal adulation!
his final act sealed, veiled in darkness
light and reality; the ire of his affection
suitor of death ~ by misadventure
he is the master of misdirection
eluding the grim reaper; a masterful 
necromancer; he is the magician
