the game

thegamep82_opt.jpg

squirrelly-eyed, amassing bills,
he is no acceptable substitute
Washington strung the real player along
burst out laughing
at the end of it all
as if surprised
wait
      wait
            everybody

all words, including title, from page 82 of Shutter Island by Dennis Lehane. poem #75 of the First 100 Days series, and poem #4 for National Poetry Month.
