but the wind blew over my house of cards
suicide king falls face up
the rest of the deck is dead to me
so cautious, building my house
pointer finger and thumb
delicately reaching up
hold your breath
so gentle now
will the card stay up?
Again and Again and 52 times
unitl the pointer is red and the pink polish is tired
and i sigh in relief- and my breath knocks it all over
