Chance: Six More From a Tarot

This entry is part 11 of 13 in the series Chance: A Poetic Tarot

61

On the grass before
noon: a hundred circles
with the sheen
of pearl—

62

Such grit
that roughens
the dwelling-
place of years—

63

And if I hardly
gave you gifts,
that is their
rarity.

64

A metal
goblet will
hold water
colder.

65

Tears are a sign
the body misses
its last warm
appointment.

66

The sky’s wide
boat, this seat
under the tree
that silvers me—

 

In response to Via Negativa: Oysterous.
