Destiny

"uuuuuuhhhh" she whispered into my ears,
My destiny.
I cringed, scared.
"uuuuuuhhhhh", whites all, pretty saree, no face.
She gestured with her hands, faceless, emotionless,
Oh, the unfathomable words!

Horoscope, horoscope, get my horoscope
She danced with a specific rhythm of hands and feet.
Oh destiny, how do I read you?
You have no face!
Still, still she was.
I handed her the paper the priest gave.

She tore it into pieces,
there she lay my destiny, in pieces,
join them, paste them.
How could you?
Why would you?
God! This struggle, this meaning
my horoscope, my destiny.

Crystal balls, would you know?
"uuuuuuhhh" yet again.
unfathomable noise.
afraid to read, is that language?
can I read anymore?
"uuuuuuuuuhhhhhhh"
Aaaahhhhh, stop it!
