Two People Singing Lonely On February 13

All roads lead to Babylon

And all signs point to it

Though she snuggled into me

Her embraces were wont to last

Hers was a face sculpted from dust

And all signs point to her

The gentle sigh as she whispers

My name, though she slipped twice

A trailing look down her neck

And all signs point to it

Rapid pecks red on my cheeks

And bites beyond my ear

Her pouty lips blew a joint

And all signs point to it

I wonder if she’ll love me back

She wouldn’t show a tear

She slithers to the hall table

And all signs point to it

She grabs the cash and extra tip,

Quick pause and then she’ll go

So ends the girlfriend experience

And all signs point to it

CARD DRAWN:

QUEEN OF CUPS

THIS IS THE TAROT CHALLENGE, a 78-day writing challenge where everyday I pick out a random card from my tarot deck and write something about, against, inspired by, based on the card by the day’s end. The works can range from poetry to fiction to drama. When the card is from the major arcana, the title of the work should be the card name. When the card is from the minor arcana, the title can be different but the card drawn should be revealed at the end.
