One look
and she knows

a spirit woman can
see another

there's no veil
just pathways of light

she tells me of
her friend

at 5:00 pm
an endoscopy

a tube and camera
to peer inside

it should detect
the source of the bleeding

pancreatic cancer
the only two words I say

Her steel blue eyes
look up from scanning

in wonder, in knowing
yes, it's probably that

The patient has no family
the clerk tells me

I will have to manage
the death by myself

just like that
we predicted the future

that was already
coming to pass
