“Deal of the Week” is an updated take on the horoscope column. Bad advice, worse poetry, every Monday.
Let the hail fall with the lightning! Chance the in-between with all the chaos you can summon; it’s a king’s roulette regardless of the outcome; dizzy fortune for streets named for trees in a shining city with god kings in its bones. I see diamond dice in her glittering waterways and pray with them for all who cross. There is a cruel face underneath and he is indistinguishable from his benevolent brother, a gentle Janus who lives beneath the casinos.
