    Tonight You’ll Be Able

    by Matthew Zapruder

    It may feel good to go wherever.
    Desires lead you into old familiar
    destructive awareness.  Going a thousand
    miles away seems to be keeping up.
    Unsettled and anxious signals:
    They’re so microscope.  Be a sleuth.
    Tiny sparkling under those around you
    sees you feeling and waiting.  Life
    today is slow-moving coworkers.
    Respond by giving your profile
    a new sense of clarity, and feel
    ready to share your outlook even
    if they may not be as excited.  It
    makes you good to spread your joy.
    People, its harder to be yourself.
    A series of role-playing opportunities
    appeases, showing the authentic
    you won’t hurt anything.  Focus
    on your lovely find that there
    are many more things.  Tonight,
    you’ll be able to talk to anyone
    about anything, make all the loved ones
    muster up, chat with character,
    keep alive the conversations.
    You feel you’re getting something
    someone gives you.  The key
    to a series of coincidences you
    play matchmaker to.  An odd couple,
    the present you and the future
    in a big suit, a new haircut,
    or, better than anticipated, funds.
    A few minor changes to June.
    Love partners, your lucky numbers
    are 4, 7, 18, 21 and 32.  Ask yourself
    what would I do if I knew I could
    not fail.
