Eyewitness to Bibliomancy

At my wits' end 
By all I see before me, 
I pick a book I believe

To hold truth; I balance it 
On its spine and allow it 
To fall open; with eyes closed 

I pick a passage and let truth flow 
Back through my fingers 
To the future

Till it blinds me.


  1. I've had a similar kind of day. Now I'm off to find a book...

    1. Poor White - Sherwood Anderson. Very much the right one. Thanks for the great poem Vassillis.
