Lovers in Dystopia

The Dystopian Tarot, The Lovers
Kerry O’Connor

He offers her red- poisoned fruit tainted with Satan’s brand
while she looks on with pleasure at her dystopian land

For here in this deadly contaminated state
there is only agony and pain caused by the fall of man
so woman takes his rib, bleeding out to procreate
while humanity’s mortal fate is in Lucifer’s hands.
