The Birth of Intuition

by Jerry Ratch

My wife's got dangerously good 
Peripheral vision 
She can see things so far to the side 
That I'm almost certain she can see things behind her 

And I'm sure she can see things that happened yesterday 
But the thing that scares me the most 
She can see what happened in my previous lives 
All of them 

And I'm afraid she's keeping tabs 
And may be my secret angel 
Or she's in direct cahoots with God 
Who may have gotten a little lazy 
About keeping tabs on all of us
