Gift of Prophecy

           Looking back, i know that the man possessed no gift of prophecy ; he simply worked to assure his own future, while i skated uncertainly towards mine. It was his flat-voiced "Cherchez la femme" that still haunts me. Because our partnership was nothing but a bungling road to the Dahlia. And in the end, she was to own the two of us completely.
