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?

Security

Some exurb in hell,
No beds
No blankets
No brushes.
Trump's stench.
His paradigm: kids in cages.

Fourth of July 1960

Fireflies in a jar
atop the television.
We wake to a blaze.

Rough Girls

This is for all the rough girls
made of earth, water,granite,stars,
no dearth of sweet and sting.
I was with you under the dogwoods
with Mama's pilfered smokes.
The pills, and cutting came later.
Now, clean and courageous, hear the clang and quiver
of The Great Bell Chant.
May all beings be safe.
May you wear garlands
of pink and white blossoms
in your silver hair.


Tarot of the Crone--Ace of Disks--Body--Experience your self, your life, all that you own.

the Delphic oracle
on the road

Speak your soul mantra

Baba Yaga's Cat

I want to come back
as Baba Yaga's cat*Cat*
and save all the young girls
with flowers*FlowerY* in their hair.
The #metoo movement
is not a fairytale.
But I think that old, skinny witch
will let me weave
rainbows *RainbowR* on her loom,
to guide them home.
There will be no pot of gold at trail's end,
just safety, and sun*Sun*
and sun
and sun.

14 lines


Author's Note: Baba Yaga is a Slavic witch who may be evil, but just as well benign to those that are brave and pure of heart. In one tale Baba Yaga's cat helps a young innocent girl escape the witche's kettle. I think BABA knew all along.

Is the pinnacle
of man's evolution
to have destroyed
Mother Earth?
At dawn, I search
for birds.
