the boy with the coffee-coloured 
eyes tells me that writers are prophets: 
he points out times when they 
have described futures beyond 
their time all-too-well - 

he lists a few of my favorites: 
fitzgerald. bradbury. orwell. 

they painted tragedy before 
the colors or the canvas 
could decide whether or not they were  
destined to portray calamity 

but i want to know:  
do a writer’s words possess the 
keen gift of Sight, or are they merely 
the result of an inclination towards observation? 

are their predictions prophecy 
or the product of attentive perception?

      does a writer understand the future 
      as well as the future understands the writer?
