All in


chasing that feeling you get

when you hit a nut flush on the river


pure adrenaline arouses senses

a heightened awareness trembles

triumph in the face of adversity

breathes life into voided numbness



the verities of chance are mercurial at best

many times dealing blows

that shake the foundation of his pursuit



like addiction to sex

or any other mood altering pill

he becomes blinded by

desire to become more

than he was yesterday


fuck, even when confronted with the folly

of his reasoning, he continues to jump

into fires, just to feel alive


stories like this never conclude well

they just end in capricious noise


imagine it’s time to change this narrative

to go (all in) a novel direction
