know when to hold ‘em

07/29/2009

he sat at the table
the cards had better be good
there was no covering up
she knew all of his tells
in just two short years
ante by increased ante
his end of the table grew naked
chips floating fluidly like a
newly made millionaire lotto winner’s funds
into the pile in front of her
the more he invested
the more she gained
good thing the chips were only for show
in a barren room needing decor
their bed in the next room
defeated, he happily lets her celebrate
a victory in defeat, his all-in win
