Call it what you will—
The clairvoyant:
who, with sleight of hand,
lays the cards of the future on the table.
Then, whispers a date beyond
all the tomorrows you have ever considered –
Shoots you a sight
like Halley’s Comet—
streaming by
then, out into orbit…
As you think to yourself –
Will I live to see such things?
