All in

200px-Str8flush_B-29_noseart

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

.

yet…

the verities of chance are mercurial at best

many times dealing blows

that shake the foundation of his pursuit

.

still…

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
