Abstract

The Possible is a collection of tarot poems that seeks to investigate the many possibilities of action and truth. They are arranged in tarot spreads, which can be interpreted multiple ways, and can be read as the emotional state of the questioner or the fate of the questioner. Several sections are impossible, in terms of conventional reality—the sections which pull one card repeatedly, The Tower and The Lovers. This seeks to shatter further ideas of what is really possible, and how magic can be interpreted and utilized differently from moment to moment. They want to tell you a story, but they want to make it your story, a story you didn’t even know you needed to see. They want to be little mirrors to your invisible places.
