The mask of worries
Trinity Charms makes masked predictions
from behind a three-eyed visage
painted in layers of paper-mache.
Strange runes drawn on the cheeks,
lips drawn purple and voluptuous,
but in a strange way unmoving.

Her predictions though mesmerizing
are far from happily magical.
She will tell you the three stages of your life
Your misery, your sadness, and your death.

And all the while those purple lips smile at you
blankly and wordlessly.
Careful...lest you hear what you’d rather not know.
