false hope zodiac

the suspense is killing me, occasionally 

it reverberates with rust and reluctance

a mechanical fortune teller

spitting out a cliche about you and me

(retrograde in mercury)

serendipitous to believers, perhaps

this shallow wisdom helps

like a bandaid over a severed artery

false hope zodiac

is it ancient wisdom

or the fool’s almanac

tarot or torture

I guess we’ll wait and see

(wealth and love guaranteed)
