April 17, 2014

A smiling face in front of a skull and
bones can never be a positive sign –
deception, malevolence, subterfuge –
a woman in the middle is clapping,
or wiping, her hands of the matter.
But right to left yields a better message:
danger approaches or is present –
but the woman in the middle
resolves the matter – as a mother protects
her sun, a lover fixes the situation
for her lover – tragedy transforms
to comedy, romance. Boy is happy, safe.
What a difference direction makes.
“What’s in your wallet?”
