Hope hurts

Filling trenches
Sweeping dead leaves
Planting new seeds
Weeds are salad greens

Expectations of future
Change is waylaid
Contentment is paid
Out in daily mail

Playwright tonight
Stack the deck
Pawn in check
Win and genuflect

Dark horse rooms
Ask me my stars
Swing me in bars
Strum my guitar

Never knowing
How to play cards

Show me your hand?
Fragment of a frieze, Eros. Berlin Museum.
