The conclusion of a Vallejo poem (click here for the rest) makes fortunetelling look easy in the sense that a good center fielder, Carlos Beltran when healthy, say, or the athletic Matt Kemp, makes a difficult catch seem almost but not quite routine:
What hasn't yet come along won't, but
what's already come and gone,
but what's already come and gone.
Cesar Vallejo, translated by Tom Clark, on his blog today
