The Flip of a Card

Old dice rolling and tumbling
as they enter a casino,
the forgotten habits
and gumshoe tricks
come right back as
social networking whores
of cheap commerce,
perfume, and liquor.

A game is to be played.
That is, a game must be played.

For those antics have purpose,
no trickery here.

You can still beat the house,
burn it down even.
