Poker

I find myself making deals.
Making deals with the Unseen.
If you give me this, then
and only then will I give you that.

Crisis.
It makes almost anyone
a faux believer
How long does the faith linger?
Only time will tell.

The stakes are sky high.
Stacked high are my bargaining chips.
Slippery fingers shaking.
Might leave me in debt.
