fortunetelling for poets

the torn edge
of the sheet
suggests devotion

the folded corner
of the page
suggests attention

the ink stained
fingertips
suggest emotion

the quiet
glowing eyes
suggest dissention

the soft
and longing lips
suggest attraction

the left arm
crossing right
suggests a gamble

the writing
on the page
suggests retraction

suggested by
the phrase
"omit preambles!"
