he deals them nightly
edges worn pale
in the shuffling
passage of years

routine rather than faith
guides his hands
in familiar patterns
cover and cross

Five of Swords
"the burden shouldered"

arcane therapy closes
wrapped in purple silk
reduced to regret, nostalgia
all so much noise
no room left
in today's steel and concrete
for fingers
of forgotten gods

Smile if you're stupid,
laugh if you understand.
