the joys of looking a gift nightmare in the mouth

the gift of foresight is as often
as not a curse bringing not joy
but anxiety through dreams of
events yet to happen the precise
meaning of which are unhelpfully
shrouded in ambiguity only made
clear once the prophesied calamity
has transpired or in other words
only once it is too late to change the
outcome and so night after night
falling asleep becomes part of the
greater ordeal of never knowing
what exactly tomorrow will bring
other than what one has spied
darkly like a sleepwalking double
agent in the corridors of the yet to be.
