This entry is part 8 of 13 in the series Chance: A Poetic Tarot

43

Madam, I’ll serve
your interests,
contingent on
your currency.

44

A pearl will do
as well as a bond—
The first one heralds
a string: loss leader.

45

Implacable
promise: your word
on this piece
of paper.

46

Twilight
of perforations
that we call
stars—

47

Have a seat
at my table
and tell me what
you would not eat.

48

On the Day
of the Dead, we collect
the softest bones
of tallow.

 

In response to an entry from the Morning Porch.
