blindside the seer

soothsayers should not see themselves,
leave the path untouched
lest you corrupt your own sight;

seen too many battles
and almost as many victories,
trying to keep the roof patched
as arrows of fire sink into straw

soothsayers should be blind,
let fate draw the lines behind closed lids –
believe.

I want to believe.
