The Tower

entombed in a yes

that grew from nights before

i hold you

as you read me

and force myself to tote the

quiet lines of my

gut in a tiny

strip of yellow

paper

i write a poem of

loving you and

you read it

back

and

once more

reside within the

tower of no answers

or the ambiguous smile

or touch

or kiss

or endless sucking and fucking

that jarrs the persona

out

XVI – THE TOWER

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 dayโ€™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.
