Heart-Mirror – Tess Gallagher

A little spit on the heart-mirror β€”
like my father, the gambler,
spitting into his palms
then rubbing them together
before he lets go
the dice. I am rolling
through stars
just thinking about it.
And my heart, rubbed clean
with maniac luck,
gets what it wanted
for once: this child’s moon
and three sentinel lovers.
