What happened when we gathered: candles, creation. tarot cards, revelations. water, wine. stories, evidence. Demeter, Persephone. empress, high priestess. my heart, your song.
What I heard when you dared to say it out loud: I know. I want. I see. I think. I feel. I try. I need. I hope. I can. I am, I am, I am.
What happened when you all left me and walked out into the rain: candles snuffed out. palo santo lit. room hazy with our energy. plumes of smoke from the incense, burning. washing wine glasses, I thought of how the fragile edges kissed your mouths, like the words. I thought, come back.
