the poker game at the end of time




everybody wants to play

the cards settle like birds on the green baize

amazing confessions and countless connections

forgiveness of sin

and calling of hands

the room floats in the void

and light stirs motes of star dust

morning and other concerns

remain in the corner

I call

I call

I call

what have you got?
