Poker Face

When we watch

and wait

Knowing

the unknowing

So cool

with your poker face

The one

everyone reads

So calm

and sweating on the inside

Wondering how you are going to remember

the web you have weaved

You weave them so well

those stories

you tell

And then they

know

and you wonder why they leave

So cool with that poker face

you know,

the one

that shows the hand

you’re holding

  1. Thinking about Poker and life, some people complain that they are just playing the cards that were dealt to them. I kind of wonder. Watching TV, I see that a lot of people fold hands with lots of potential rather than play them. Perhaps this is true in life as well.

      1. It is amazing to watch someone lie, even when you know they are lying and that they know aren’t fooling you.
        Trump is like that, only on a big scale.
        As for why people throw away potential….that’s a tough one. Fear is certainly one motivation, but there are many others.
