Bid Whist

Vintage Words

.

He has it

I know he does.

My set card rests

in his muscular

male fingers.

.

She sits waiting

for his last offering,

face mute

as if a button

had pushed her

into quietness.

.

The partner,

in opposition to 

my fear of loss,

takes another sip

of very brown

distillate.
