Reading by candlelight

She, prim and proper arrived
Sitting elegance
I shuffled the deck
Her question asked

Eleven cards later, she had an answer
Sliding 20 across the table
She asked another

You won’t like the answer, I warned
As she prodded for the deck
(It’s one I rarely use)
I shuffled, and she asks again
I draw out only three

No sooner had I drawn the third
She turned on heels and left
The messages unheard
Transmitter irreparable
Receiver absolved
