What poker is like in Japan.

25 Jul

Shuffle. Shuffle. Deal.

Chips click. Red blue and white. Piles grow like dead leaves.

Shuffle. Shuffle. Deal.

Misdealt card. Flash of diamond. Angry muttering.

Shuffle. Shuffle. Deal.

Two pair. Flush. Full house. You lose.

Shuffle. Shuffle. Deal.

One card. Two cards. Drop. Pat hand.

Shuffle. Shuffle. Deal.

Butts in saki cups. Smoky clothes. Sagging spirits.

Shuffle. Shuffle. Deal.

Empty wallet.  Me, too. Me, too. Chairs scrape back.

Shuffle. Shuffle. Shuffle.

Shuffle. Shuffle. Shuffle.
