THE CARDS OF THE TAROT DECK

 


THE CARDS OF THE TAROT DECK

-         Miriam Sagan (U.S.A.)

 

The cards of the tarot deck
are transparent
to the inner eye

that is, even dealt facedown
we should be able to see
which image is which

and differentiate
the Hanged Man
who sways head first

suspended, but not
in pain—
from The Lovers

who might be
represented by
a pair of swans

or any two things
that want to be together forever
and drink a potion from a cup

although how
am I to read my fortune
when both these cards turn up?
