NaPoWriMo 22 (portents)

eyes, drawn into being:
predicting, liberating, wise –
all-knowing.
they’re a secret you
want to decipher.
they’re a million stories
going untold.

lips, sketched from
imagination.
coax a story
that they’re reluctant
to tell.
(watch for the lipstick days.
these are the ones when the story
means
nothing.)

dare this prophetess
to give you a piece of
knowledge.
she may just do it.

(when she does
she will include
symbolism

and say the symbol is
your fault.
because, you see,

you already knew it)
