Tell me,
how we play this game?
dice involved, yes?

Maybe the occassional thrown hand –
That phone call I should’ve made
or note returned,
a second letter after the first?

Even my letters betray me
as I sat down to write
they curved in some sick italics
around me and cursed me.

What a sick shit I was
pretending to write this
as if it mattered-
or even you cared one
load of crap about it.

but the game goes on
and the ‘forwards’ make me sick.
