How to Read the Tarot

Begin by brewing a cup of tea,
a nervine, lemon balm or chamomile,
this is after all, your future.
A reading at the dark of the moon is best,
before the night creatures crawl
and bad humours fill the air.
Pick a circular deck, with a fairy-tale motif,
and no reversals.
Hold a question in your heart,
shuffle the cards and place them on the table.
Choose only two.
Like the ancient Israelites,
these are your seer stones, Urim and Thumimm,
black and white, yes or no.
Isn't that all you were asking?

When the rapture comes
I will speak in fairy tongues
and lie among the roses and cosmos.
I will remain to feel earth's weight
and gravity in my bones.
I will have no shame to stay
with the shells, sea, and stones
untwining a skein of love, of pain,
that binds me here,
singing a last refrain.
Creation and destruction.

Tarot of the Crone--Ten of Cups--Rapture--Let the strength of all you have ever loved carry you to another level.

Blaze Orange

Saharan dust flows
east to west, prograde motion
sunsets blaze orange

In August, at twilight,
you can wish upon a meteor
and have tangled Perseid dreams.
You can bottle the churning, chaotic energy
of our spinning galaxy
her spiral arms enfolding you
in her cosmic reality.
This is no deception.
We all walk a path
of chance, of fate,of finding purpose.
You are here.
Loneliness is not an option.

Tarot of the Crone--X--The Wheel--There is only one direction to take, to the future.

Rainbow ponies dance
at the edge of space and time.
Our life is a patchwork picture quilt.
Death is a gift,
a staircase star trip
bringing us closer to the heavens
than the cold Karman line.

I want to smell
like a dry martini
made with expensive gin.
Brisk alcohol, juniper berries,
fresh pine winds
and crashing waves
that dry down to oblivion.

Strap bound and cracked
red calligraphy
dark and named
tap and cry
dusty grimoire.

When I see her on the street
pushing her beat up Publix cart
looking for cans and bottles to recycle
I stop to say hello,
ask how she is,
look deep into her eyes
and wait for the knots in my chest
to dissolve.
We are both ghost particles
blazars of edgework
impermanent humans
fielding life's chaos.

Dark Goddess Tarot---Seven of Air--Laverna--Roman Goddess of Theives--In silence and darkness you may find the answer that has been eluding you.

The fields are dancing,
oscillating atoms of sorghum and wheat.
Electric bees lie down on a pillow of grass,
drunk with pollen lust.
All objects fall in the same way
despite mass and substance.
Sometimes you need a shove
to move inertia out of the way,
to stop the turbulent clock's minute hand,
and just lie down, in the yellow heat,
beside the abandoned shed.

Dark Goddess Tarot--Witch of Earth--Inanna--Make magic in partnership with natural forces.

I am tired of the world.

Tired of Trump and his dismantling of democracy.

Tired of FaceBook.

Tired of everyone and their petty preoccupations.

My arm still aches a great deal of the time.

I pray. I meditate.

Former neighbors are suing our insurance company for 12,000 in damages. I hate them.

This long and winding road is too long and winding.

I am glad the boys in Thailand are rescued.

What about the immigrant children here?

Lady Liberty

Rise and resist
my heart said go.
Among her robes
I sought shelter.

For Patricia Okoumo--the brave activist that scaled Lady Liberty.
