How it’s meant to be

She’s the friend of a friend
and I’ve never had a reading with her
though here she is
setting up her tarot cards
and I only stopped to buy a cookie

we’re the only two people in the bakery
but that’s not why I say yes

I suddenly need to know
that this is all exactly
how it’s meant to be

I want her to look me in the eye
and tell me the stars
are up there clapping
as I perform my part
in the play

but of course
she doesn’t say that

she pulls the coyote trickster card
and for a moment
I swear I can hear
the stars laughing.
