Random Poem:

Deal
unknown

Waves shuffle the deck
 1
present me with a new hand
 2
before I can act on the old.
 3
It’s conch to jellyfish low
 4
when suddenly my ante
 5
disappears with a bubble
 6
down the gullet of a clam.
 7
Damn ocean is clam rich
 8
and ready to break against me.
 9
I guess I’m in till I’m busted
 10
and the waves call the clock.
