Tarot, parenting (tarenting?)
The kid (age 4) wanted to see my tarot deck, so I had her pull ten cards and told her to make up a story.
The story was a long complicated affair, wherein the King of Cups was trying to kidnap the Queen of Coins away from the King of Wands, and the lady on the Two of Swords (who was the mother of all the villains) swooped in to protect her until the hero (which the Two of Wands turned into when he grew up into the Page of Wands) could get there.
I think she reads tarot better than I do...
Pensive verse, inspired by 17776 of all things
of what finite length is a month
one circuit of the moon, pulling
the seas as they rise and rise and
rise again, beseeching in prayers
unanswerable, seeking from frigid
shores a reflected celestial warmth,
as though skyward hands shaking in
supplication could stem the slide
of earthbound hourglass grit pouring
through fingers that would shield now
a mom, but not *your* mom
