Here are your instructions
First think of a question
If the pointer’s missing
A wineglass can fill in
Light as a feather
Feel it slide across the board
Is it just a game
Or a mysterious force

The spirits enter yes/no alphabetical
Hungry for contact as half-starved stray cats
Wary but they wanna twine round your ankles
And press against the glass

It’s only Parker Brothers magic
But it seems to work
Spill your little secrets
Like letters in a book
Spelling out the future
They can’t give you proof
But if you just let them work through you
They will speak the truth

Allow your hands to slacken
Let go your motor function
You’re an aperture an open door
You are just the passenger

If I miss the party
Don’t wait for me to show
You should start without me
I’ll send a message home
