part 2 : the hand you’re dealt

The cards I held from a pristine deck,

you knowingly dealt, that warm spring day,

as I sat poker faced with no aces to play.

I was left with knaves and jokers

and ones with low numbers,

as you conjured from your sleeve, as conjurers do,

a diamond ace; as sharp and as cutting as the smile on his face.

He was smug and wealthy

and able to trump anything i played.

With no hand to show,

he clubbed me in spades and punctured my heart.

Tell me. Why is the heart the last to know?
