Picture: Death, from an Italian tarot deck collected in the nineteenth century, Pitt Rivers Museum, Oxford.
I wrote a series of poems based on the court cards and major arcana of the Tarot de Bologna in 2005. A few of them may be good enough to put on Flickr; others will require some revision first. Here's one:
Alas, you are so easeful,
And I have courted you so long.
Look like globes of compassion
Set in a terse and tongueless skull.
The reaping is easy
When the seeds chack and clatter
Like so many restless bones.
Poem by Giles Watson, 2005.
