The King of Limbs for the Sickly Tarot
Completed July 19, 2011
For Radiohead, Stanley Donwood, & Dr. Tchock.
Here, the King of Limbs looms, mouth wide, holding the moon upon a stick in a hand of indecision, and holding himself in his own arms, before many things, separating the fractured landscape; his melody is being stolen; his head is open, many limbs pouring out and a Lotus Flower rising from them. There is an empty space inside his heart. Mr. Magpie’s sunrise is in progress, beneath it, the ocean blooms. Jellyfish go by. Just dragonflies to the side. A Feral child running in the background. Also, a figure falling from the giant bird carrying it, another falling out of bed, and a figure dancing around the pit, and another diving into an eye.
Divinatory Notes: A sudden awakening. Evolution in thinking. Awareness, invulnerability, endurance, sublimation. Responding to indignation. Action after much inactivity. Opposition to tyranny. Aspiration. The underdog undermining the mad-dog.
Reversed: Rude awakening resulting in finding one’s self out of one’s element. Isolation, vulnerability, misdirection, being bereft, and cultural differences.
