Wheel of Fortune

Metamorphic, those bodies and faces
Half human, animal, other,
Dissolving identities in the flowing stream
Which turns the wheel, shaping
Moments out of the flow

Like markings on a clock face
Each one eternally present
While the fingers of fate move imperceptibly
Meeting at the apex of the dial
Then parting; so Ego
Climbs to become king for a day,
Falls again to swim in the stream
As Now once more becomes Eternity.


Which way should the wheel turn?
Some cards show it turning clockwise.
Others anti-clockwise.
Is this significant?
