At Writer’s Island, the prompt is “Foretell.” This is my second of two! Enjoy a true moment… Amy


pulls up an ankle sock and
turns to the grown musicians

“In B Flat,” she whispers, “one-two-three-“
and launches into “K-K-K-Katy”
Two choruses, much applause

She’s found her spot:
Face to the crowd, in front of the band
Selling the song

No fortune teller could have read her palm
Nor Tarot deck have been laid
any better than this
