Queen of Cups

She waits
knowing that
when she sees
what she is
waiting for

She will know,

certainly,
she will know

Certainly,
she will recognize

that the opener
has arrived

that the time
has come

for the waiting
to end

Surely,
the water will
reflect to her

the perfection
of the moment
arriven

Show her

that the moment
has arrived

and she has
arrived at the moment

of choosing

of no longer waiting

of no longer wallowing in
private tenderness, weakness, fear

Show her

that a moment
has arrived with
a mouth thirsty
to drink from her cup
all that she has
by turns guarded jealously
and spilled indiscriminately

When the moment
arrives

will she choose
generosity

or will she be
miserly?
