Resistant, depending on the wager.
Line the cards right to left–seven
face-down and hope you don’t flip
a nine or ten of swords, there’s

nothing like seeing the blades slay
a past cacoon or tell you, “it’s over”
when you already know it’s over. But
seeing the blood on her hands

is always worse. Just turn that card upside-down, the one where she’s
standing under a burnt lime sky, pointing to three skulls at her throat.
