Notes from a Reading

At 15 my tarot readings weren’t very interesting
But they were nice
I got the shining star
It was bright

At 30 my cards tell me more
I’ve done so many rites for the community
Now, I start to stop
Next, the blue robin’s egg has to break

And there’s fire and flames
Not just light but heat
Not just light but burning
Not just light but clearing
