As Read in the Cards

An Evil Eye,

To protect from dread,

A tarot spread,

The Broken Heart connects with threads,

A plotline’s end,

Where the good guys die and the bad guys win,

The 4 chords,

So many songs at my disposal,

A cracking and popping vinyl record,

At San Quentin or Folsom Prison?

A brand new piercing,

Ouch, my head,

My Antik skates,

Stitched just for me in Red Wing, MN,

A saddle coated by Neat’s Foot

Seeping in to bend and flex

The dally of a rope,

5 seconds flat,

And a sturdy little mare to call my own,

Called from the pastures of the place I call home.

Jack of all trades, master of none, but better than being the master of one. Probably writing about necromancers on the side
