at the county fair

The lady sat in her kaftan

restless with boredom

until she saw my girl

read your palm honey?

smiling all sweet

watching me with bad eyes

while putting my girl on

take a seat she said

gesturing at an empty wooden chair

would you like a tarot reading

or me to read your palm?

I wandered away

looking for the beer tent

a rifle range win her a teddy

until she caught me up

long time later

all quiet & serious

it was nothing she offered

just the usual stuff

& later that day

she did say though

we wouldn’t be together

in the long term

& that is sad


& I was thinking

maybe I could be a clairvoyant

as I’d been thinking

the same thing too
