CLAIRVOYANT, NEEDING CONTACT LENSES, FORESEES BLURRY FUTURE
RueUrsula

Intuition is when my gums bleed just before I wake up.
 1
I am at my most oracular when I am one-foot-in, one-foot-out
 2
of the Hokey Pokey circle.
 3
When I am one eye open and one eye closed,
 4
winking between folds of space and time.
 5
 
 
The hardest part of knowing is knowing only some things,
 6
is knowing how glimpsy your vision is,
 7
that your pinhole camera
 8
does not shoot in
 9
Cinemascope.
 10
 
 
Peeping tom on the future I was made to acknowledge
 11
that loss is a necessary human experience,
 12
that grief is a necessary human emotion,
 13
 
 
that I can two birds/one stone it
 14
when I buy an already-broken
 15
television for the static,
 16
that my friend drops it while
 17
loading it into my car,
 18
that it is still broken,
 19
but still works.
