conversations with the psychic

by Jerry Ratch


She told me in all my past lives I've always been a woman, and I was stuck in this relationship and you weren't coming back, so I should just move on and get over it. I was a little sad, but yeah, I knew I was going to go back to her one more time, just to be sure.


She told me, “You're suffering a lot.” Well, yeah, I thought because she could hear me crying. At first I figured this was a little generic, but then again maybe, I don't know, maybe there was more to it.


And then you came over to see me in my little Hillside apartment that one last time and made love to me and I lied to you and said, “I guess I'm finally over you.”
