Sequence

“Sequence”

–Amy Engle

 

National Poetry Writing Month 2017 Poem #22

 

Five cards.

You play one,

You draw another.

Suits coordinate

With the board.

Alternate turns

And shoot for

Five in a row.

Jacks are wild–

One-eyed takes

A token off;

Two-eyed puts

A token on.

Luck versus skill.

Outwit your

Opponent!
