For Maria "Technical Ecstasty" Carillo

THE TURN OF A FRIENDLY CARD

Another Played
The Ace Of Spades
And Raised the Stakes
'Til I Folded
Cashed Out
Didn't want to play any more

But still
You can't
Win
If you don't
Play

So I put new cards on the table...
She Saw me...
Could've Passed...
Raised me...

My Straight made her Flush

We might not have a
Full House
But we seem to be
Two Of A Kind

We both have
Winning Hands
So for now
I say
we
Hold 'em.
