For breakfast I eat up my vowels, my a e i o u, to which I add from consonants a fricative or two;
After that I move my bowels then write as poets do, and frequently am quite surprised to feel a trill come through.

Kupaların Uşağı (Servant of Cups)

A little bit of Turkish: Balık (Fish), Baş (Head)

Balık baştan kokar.

A fish stinks from the head.
Turkish Proverb

The image on the left is from a 1910 pack of tarot cards produced by Pamela Colman Smith for Arthur Edward Waite. For a modern reproduction I recommend the Pamela Colman Smith Commemorative Set.

Other names for the Page of Cups in Turkish decks: Kupa Prensi - Prince of Cups

Please feel free to use the comments to add your own reflections upon this card and how it may be read.
