Mark Twain has been cast by Sweetwater on the Riverboat sequel Jett Durango! Rumors are Mark Twain is on the boat! ‘MARK TWAIN POWDER-YELLOWSTONE POKER FUTURITY $50,000 PURSE! BONANZA GOLD!’ Calling Chablis!


"There are few things that are so unpardonably neglected in our country as poker. The upper class knows very little about poker. Now and then you find ambassadors who have sort of a general knowledge of poker, but the ignorance of the people is fearful. Why, I have known clergymen, good men, kind-hearted, liberal, sincere, and all that, who did not know the meaning of a "flush". It is enough to make one ashamed of the species."-Mark Twain

plastic lily folds
life is too long to play bad cards

like writing if it were easy
everyone would do it

a king can do no wrong
unless it runs into an ace
 

generic implants zero-sum
the ass was made to lug the mind around


it's hard work writing
gambling and playing poker

Don't let anyone tell you different. Think about what it's like sitting at a poker table with people whose only goal is to cut your throat, take your money, and leave you in your den talking to yourself about what went wrong on the inside.

there is more to poker than life and hot lists
water-logged lilies overboard

Copyright Ms. Sage Sweetwater, celebrity firebrand lesbian novelist

If you can't play cards, you can always poke her. ;-)

After being taken by a college student/lawyer in NYC one time, I found out I knew nothing about poker.

The new game in town has you looking at the lilies from below.

I like how you deal, as you know
and must say too I am mighty fond of the full house
even in Yatzee :0 ...oh and walking over another false front
with my dress blowing about like Marilyn Monroe
atop that overboard & way out of line Plastic Lily Toadstool
who is definitely overboard!! Don't worry I see
right through that plastic lady's poke face
thumping it with my trump cards
as I never met a phony person who could
master pinochle let alone mud wrestle like I can
(I hear MC Hammer... Can't Touch This)
here's to getting dirty knees in the soil of life
as I pluck for you from my home grown liliaceous lilium gardens
a living bouquet of authenticity...a real Lily...


Deal'em up & Hit Me...Hit Me Hard...
Lets find Time for a game of Quarters...
& body shots...
Stripping Poker Dealers Are In The House!!
