Adrift Solitarily



   Adrift Solitarily

 


It’s not hard


to stack 

cards


numerically 

 (by color


and suit-

ed generic-

ally)

 

 

 into patterns 

familiar and easily made

 

(heart, diamond, club, spade).

 

 

So much simpler indeed,


hypothetically,




than to choreograph


words 

plumb poetically


creating a singular treasure


(something new and unique


beyond measure).

 



But unseemly, it seems

(and so lame)

this persistent insistence

in playing a game

(… and one more…

and one

more…

and a score and one

MORE...)

almost pathetically

and unapologetically.

 

(I ought to be ashamed.)
