But what's it mean...

First Appeared in Burnt Toast#11, 1992

Samantha looked at
the dirty dishes. "Just this
once," she thought, and twitched.
          David Trinidad

She ain't no witch
But I love the way she twitch,
uh, huh huh
          Hot Love

Most books on witchcraft will tell you that witches work naked. This is because most books on witchcraft are written by men.
          Good Omens
          Terry Pratchett & Neil Gaiman

You can do magic
You could have anything that you desired
And you know you're the one
Who can put out the fire
You know darn well
When you cast your spell
You will get your way
When you hypnotise
With your eyes
A heart of stone could turn to clay
          You Can Do Magic

New York witch
in the dungeon of the day
I'm trying to write my novel,
but all you do is play

You make me hot
You make me sigh
You make me laugh
You make me cry
Keep me burning for your love
With the touch of a velvet glove

Abra abracadabra
I wanna reach out and grab ya
Abra abracadabra
          Steve Miller Band

What does the term witchcraft mean to you?
"It's 99 per cent mumbo-jumbo. It's full of people with inferiority complexes and it's amazing, they're all ugly, and in that way united with their god."
          Eddie Pielke -- Parapsychologist

Rhiannon rings like a bell through the night
And wouldn't you love to love her
Takes to the sky like a bird in flight and
Who will be her lover
All your life you've never seen a woman
Taken by the wind
Would you stay if she promised you heaven?
Will you ever win?
She is like a cat in the dark and then
She is the darkness
          Fleetwood Mac

Mr Crowley
What went on in your head?
Mr Crowley
Did you talk to the dead?
Your life-style to me seems so tragic
With the thrill of it all
You fooled all the people with magic
Yeah, you waited on Satan's call
          Mr. Crowley
          Ozzy Osbourne

I do not use the word "peculiar" lightly. I mean, people still loyal to magic-men dead two thousand years; people given to rites of, at least, symbolic cannibalism; people who foretell for their theological rivals the most sadistic, evil-minded forms of perdition. I suppose they have names for themselves, and for their sects, but this one I can only think of as the Brown Witch.
          Views from the Oldest House
          Richard Grant

It takes a witch
To curse the Goddamn sky
          I Can't Stop the Rain
          Peter Criss

"There is a brand of evil," Brenda was saying, "we must fight. It must not be tolerated, it must not be explained, it must not be excused. Sociology, psychology, anthropology: in this one instance all these creations of the modern mind must be denied their mitigations."

"Count me out," Jane said. "Ceremonial magic really bores me, I've decided. It's too much like kindergarten. My whisk is still a mess from all that wax. And my children keep asking me what that thing in tinfoil was."
          both from The Witches of Eastwick
          John Updike

Every little thing she does is magic
Every thing she do just turn me on
Even though my life before was tragic
But now I know my love for her goes on.
          Every Little Thing She does is Magic
          The Police
