Poetry: “Cards”

Trying to write poetry about something fairly mundane.

***~***~***~***

Cards

King of diamonds
Queen of clubs
Faces dancing
In your hands

Aces ruling
Scowling looks
Flip them over
Hidden cards

Lower numbers
Aren’t much liked
Try to toss them
In the pile

Face of triumph
Lady luck
Keeps her hand on
‘Round your back

Dealer mixing
Cards about
Players gather
Start again
