Little Bits

Updated on December 21, 2011

the other treasures

plastic treasures
a fingertip press
against the ridged edges
in hopes it is enough
reluctant to release
its stamped worth

in hand there are
four aces and a queen
her heart was stolen
by the spaded knave and his King

searching for the perfect space
the king of clubs appears
a god of trickery
slips into the thicket

triumph dissipates
why would a deuce
raise the stakes?
of impending doom
or sweet elixir

the sworded king
and his eight reveal
the longed for treasures
are yours to take
