III. When Reine De Baton speaks up
“I immerse myself in the endless river of longing. Everything in me exploded. With the craving of a vortex, I offered my burning cave to every conception. My bobbing hair is the sponges gathered from a single wave. Cosmic power is expressed in the form of sexual acts that give me the supreme power of seduction. I am ready to incubate countless eggs, to make every desert bloom, and for those who live in the harsh kingdom of the Queen of Pentacles – Reine de Denier.
This is why I never stop opening my heart and calling people. I cannot survive without fertile wasteland. It was this shortage that gave me a huge stature. Under the supreme power expressed on the face, I need to be used, nurtured and oriented. This is the charm: a deficiency is transformed into strength through desire. If I do not admit this deficiency, if I crave to improve myself, I will be mutilated”.
