Poetry corner #1

I don’t know if the stars rule the world

Or if tarot or playing cards

Can reveal anything.

I don’t know if the rolling of dice

Can lead to any conclusion.

But I also don’t know

If anything is attained

By living the way most people do.

Álvaro de Campos
(from a poem dated January 5, 1935)

(h/t Zito)
