foretell shuffle


burning curiosity’s
pull towards
divination of personal
planetary positioning
upbeat, inimical
in off, oft seedy
seething stars’
backroom conspiracies
in surreptitious exchanges
of money as qualms’ bitten
we intuit personal stars
to re-cluster favorably;
moribund mind’s gypsy
conjures unsmiling saffron
robed high priest whose dire
strictures make us quake
in a gooseflesh kind of catharsis
and we are hooked
dithering on the cusp
of so called fore knowledge
we fall prey to superstitions
and rituals alienating from normalcy
and we go about our secretive business
fully aware of being a willing pawn
to another’s game of chicanery
