Today's Stichomancy for Nick Cave

The first excerpt represents the past or something you must release, and is drawn from Child of Storm by H. Rider Haggard:

Such is my certain doom, except I appear in arms against thy cause. Accursed be he of Goodalricke, who baited this trap for me! and doubly accursed Albert de Malvoisin, who withheld me from the resolution I had formed, of hurling back the glove at the face of the superstitious and superannuated fool, who
