No Oracle Day

December 16, 2012

It should be easy by now to just sit.

When nothing is the matter,

to recline back and enjoy the sun,

the wind skipping off of the pool,

collecting its cool and serving it to you.

Nothing sounds more perfect,

until an echo of doubt resonates.

Listen. It is somewhere close and whispers

restlessness. A nostalgic pop song

plays on the radio and only confuses the mood.

It fits, perhaps, too well. There are no coincidences.

Only symptoms of greater acts.

The lapping of the pool

predicts typhoons. The wisps of wind

warn of hurricanes. The chewing of my fingernails

portends violent acts. I stop.

A gray striped cat looks across quizzically.

Animals are often augers so I hark

to receive but a flick of the head and curl of the tail.

We both look across the pool.

The shade and reflections are all we will consider.

He’ll play no oracle today

and nor will I.
