Below is “Abracadabra” by Mauricio Ortiz
Abracadabra is an incantation now used as a magic word in stage magic tricks and historically believed to have healing powers when inscribed on an amulet. The first known mention of the word was in the third century AD in a book by Quintus Serenus Sammonicus, physician to the Roman emperor Caracalla. It may derive from an Aramaic phrase meaning “I create as I speak.”
