Tonight's poem

Optimism at 10 p.m.

I'm not sure
who stacksthe cards.How to tellwhether their handwill stay steadyor knock and bump?Our lives
are in the grips
of others
and we know this,
but choose not
to acknowledge it
at this hour,
late for some,
beginning for others.
Your foolishness
is my pride.
