Day 8: An Echo

Illustration to the Rider Waite Tarot by Pamela Colman Smith

I tell myself I don't earn enough.  I say it in your tongue; whisper it beneath the sheets you paid for; pray it before I eat.  I feel it in the note you hand me, the pressure of your fingers on the edge, like a mouth, shutting.
