Notes on writing, poetry, & creativity. ~ Where artists, poets, writers, & creatives meet.

The only people I would care to be with now are artists and people who have suffered: those who know waht beauty is, and those who know what sorrow is: nobody else interests me. ~ Oscar Wilde fromaseaofquotes:

The Poet Tarot Deck and Guidebook, published by Two Sylvias Press, helps writers, artists, or anyone working on an artistic project (or simply living a creative life) explore the nuances of their creative process. The Poet Tarot features 30 well-known poets. 

This deck follows the traditional tarot deck with a few variations. The major arcana is made up of poets—Edgar Allan Poe makes a delicious Devil (XV) while Emily Dickinson is an obvious Hermit (IX). E. E. Cummings is a fantastic Fool (0) and William Butler Yeats, a transformational Ending (XIII). We’ve tweaked the suit cards to represent the stages of the creative process: Muses (Cups), Quills (Wands), Mentors (Swords), and Letterpresses (Coins). 

We’ve also written an 80 page perfect-bound print guidebook, which includes card explanations, layouts, and ideas for using the cards. The Poet Tarot is an excellent tool for writers and artists who are looking for innovative approaches to their creativity, ways to generate new work, and assistance in focusing on long and short term goals.

It’s a great lead off for this fantastic anthology of women’s poetry, published by Two Sylvias Press. Fire On Her Tongue is available in both print (click here) and eBook (click here).
Let’s Get Lost
I am insanely attracted to you.
Please make me an inmate in your asylum
and give me a bad prognosis.
These characteristics qualify me
to become your new girlfriend:
I am portable and flexible.
My eyelids click like a doll’s.
My doll heart is teeming
with bioluminescent organisms.
Also, I have a keychain that meows.
Just press the button.
Let’s get bathetic.
Let’s get sloshed
in a glass of crushed ice…
