Day 17

we gather

Written by Mandy Lee

we gather
take turns
throw bones
click spaces
plot warmly
but do what’s required
to triumph
sister-brother
or friend
in name or blood
full skirts or uniform
this is war
but by the rules

fast counters
expectations
climb far
be first
sweep the board
Buckeye Bullet
beats Adolf
passes Hillary
jostles Norgay
five
I really need a five
come on
roll!
