In The Cards
AS (20 Nov.1950 / Yerevan, Armenia)

In The Cards

She peered at the rainbow glow through a crystal ball
And discerned distorted visions of the former times
Like playing hopscotch while being an awkward little girl
Shoplifting popsicles, and commiting other petty crimes

When the ball started to rotate, she saw a familiar face
Of her guardian angel, mournful, and full of fear
In the rear stood a macabre thing from outer space
The angel warned her against listening to a false seer

When she got mad and broke the ball into small shards
She was terrified by discovering the countless watchful eyes
Which would haunt her, and that was in the cards
Until she quit spinning the web of monstrous lies
