Pablo Wears Dice-Colored Glasses

this world is a chancy
dive where the odds are ever
shifting

yuh pays yuh
money and takes
yuh chances

beg for luck
to be a lady and shoot
your wad

let it all ride
on this

Day eleven poem, LexPoMo 2017

LexPoMo2017This resulted from a prompt in The Daily Poet by Kelli Russell Agodon and Martha Silano of Two Sylvias Press. The Kindle version comes in handy, especially on a smart phone.

Unresolved

The dream starts with tornadoes,
dozens of them descending
at the same time, all around,
from a sky the color of a faded
black eye. It always begins
like this, a shifting landscape
of rage without refuge or
escape that doesn’t end
until I wake up.
