i wrote this a million years ago, for this kid in high school. oh high school.



texas, hold me.

the cards are all down
the bets have been collected
and i am off the table.
i'd be hard pressed to say
just when my fate was in the river
and all the cards that were showing
it seemed i would be won
by someone just completely wrong.
but those hidden hearts
the royal flush - that won me.
the sly way you showed your hand
and swept me off the table.
that was from me
I was counting the cards all along.
