1st November Selection

Look, it’s the brightest fairy ring I’ve ever seen!

Is that Jupiter, shining through that lens?

What is Jupiter doing there?

Carrying a big old sign saying “Eat at Joe’s?”

Old merciful fatso,

Jupiter is expansive, generous, kind—

any work done under this influence

can be expected to go well, very well, with extra blessings

as unexpected as the me of civilization

Inanna brought back to Sumer from her Uncle God, Enke

Unpacking so much more than had been given

Once the White Quay had been reached.

We gaze up at you

in these uncertain times of change

and laugh with joy

and a sudden hope

--Ruth Temple
