Kiss of life

You looked like a tarot card
Hanging upside down
After you mistakenly

Grounded that live wire

Kiss me you said 

Kiss me you fool

Based on a tale told to me by two brothers both linemen who had learned in First Aid training to refer to Artificial Respiration as "The Kiss of Life."

  1. The Fool is a powerful card because its possibilities all start in nothingness and reach into infinity. One of the 78 cards in a tarot deck, is one of the 22 trump cards that make up the Major Arcana. The Fool is often unnumbered, though sometimes represented as XXII (the last and highest) or 0 (the first, the number of unlimited potential) of the Major Arcana. It is the only card that has an a Arabic number; the other cards all adhere to the Roman numeral system. Once the 0 was invented, representing nothing, measuring, trading, and building all experienced a rapid expansion, algebra was invented and put into practical application. 0 symbolizes pure potential and faith (0 is God’s number). In many esoteric systems of interpretation, the Fool is the protagonist of a story and the Major Arcana is the path the Fool takes through the great mysteries of life and the main human archetypes (the "Fool's Journey"). The Fool represents the complete faith that life is good and worthy of trust; some might call the Fool innocent or naive. The sun rising up behind him represents both enlightenment and the beginning of his journey, but he is about to step off a cliff into the material world. The mountains behind him represent the realms of Spirit that he has just left and will spend his life trying to regain. The Fool portends important decisions ahead which may not be easy to make and involve an element of risk. The Fool is connected to Uranus, the planet that stands for the future and all unexpected things. However, the Fool reversed (upside down) indicates new beginnings being blocked.
