Poker Faces

I’ve seen these faces in another lifetime,
Excitement driven,
Behind the faces are personalities fitting for the olympics,
Running miles across the table as the cards fall,
Poker faces.

Avid players,
Bring the game out of us,
We play to win,
Assessing the cards,
Assessing body language,
Never forgetting to inspect the lively poker faces.

A dim hanging light bulb swings back and forth as our reach and popping of cards across the table is the focus of the night,
Some win,
Some lose,
Respect the game,
And the crowd of poker faces.
