How to read a palm

Examine the heart; is it sappy, or made of stone?

Trace the veins that indicate the wisdom of Solomon,

or the mercurial folly of man.

Follow the lines of travel: do they cross?

If the life line looks long enough, break off the branch,

toss it in the street, to be trampled by donkeys and pilgrims.
