Blind bibliomancer
communed with the dead
tracked fortune in the
movement of stars
poet of infinity
tangled the net of love
a caul about my head
my heart held in stasis
tripped my breath
left me for dead
my book unread

That is quite a spell you cast in so few lines, Bill. I love the idea of the 'blind' bibliomancer using all other means at his disposal, spirits, astrology, superstition. I think a caul is supposed to mean you will never drown isn't it? But you get tangled in the net of poetry and love. The title is very appropriate to the piece. It is a weave of words -- a clever one at that.

Ooh, very mystic, Bill!  I love it- hypnotic, urgent - like a spell! Incantory! Very well done - beautifully done with the rhyming couplet at the end!
