Poem–Tarot: The Lovers

Tarot: The Lovers

The velvet costume envelopes his chest
He must have plumage:
Patterned silk, quilts, brocades
Oriole orange
Tanager scarlet
Feathered brilliance.

She more melancholic
Plumage less radiant
Drabber, smaller.

Entangled in the purple bulrushes
He enfolds her
Into the layers of his robe.

O! For a life of naked imperfection in an open field!
