KNIFE EDGE

I suppose that at one time or other we've all wondered what the future holds in store for us: fame, wealth, love, or even heartbreak. 
There are Tarot Cards, Ouija Boards, Horoscopes and clairvoyants whose palms you'll doubtless have to cross with silver, along with a seemingly endless number of other less well-known methods, but in my view, something as simple as a kitchen knife, spun on a table top, has the edge over them all.

















DIVINATION

spin the knife  
on a table top
 
watch it imitate  
time accelerated
clock hands flying   

watch life rush
away    


its sure escape  
mesmerizing  

ask a question  

knife rotates  

somewhere out there
something waits
