The gypsy turned a blue card up,
the card of seventeen.
Silver-sweetened words splashed out
the dream of what she'd seen:
I see a star and a secret pool
between the dry trees dying,
I see two pitchers pouring out
the water of birth and drowning;
and last, I see as I grow hoarse
the truth there is in lying.

Process note: The Star is the 17th card of the Major Arcana in the Tarot, and signifies one's dreams and aspirations.
