holding the future like a blade against the throat of today

she was a psychic
using the future
as a blade
to carefully slice apart
the present tense muscles
of past indiscretions
indiscriminately
being forgotten
intimately
being dismantled
this mantle
of soothe sayer
waving her hands
over a crystal ball
to see the spirits
of the living dead
all while holding
the future
like a blade
to the throat
of today
