The Shaman's Lament

I can feel the universe humming all around me.
I'm aware of action at a distance.
I can see into men's souls.
I can see into the future.
Most often too far into the future,
or not far enough.
Caffeine + Alcohol = Telepathy
No! It's true!
But tonight I've been losing my ass at poker.
