Gamey: Senryu

GAMEY

Did his best to make
An honest woman of her
She was too far gone

Without Bars: Four By Six

WITHOUT BARS

Prefers to drink at home
The alcohol’s cheaper
And being by yourself
The company’s better

Possibilities

POSSIBILITIES

Relationships
(And communications)
All too often

In time degenerate
(Or become enmeshed)
Into game playing

There are ways out
(But not always taken)
Alack and alas

Anathema: Shadorma

ANATHEMA

She found it
An anathema
To answer
His question
She appeared not to realise
Just how rude it was

Once Bitten: Shadorma

ONCE BITTEN

Some woman
Turns and smiles at him
Ignores her
Turns his back
Waits to walk on till she’s gone
“Nowt but trouble there.”

The Mating Game: Senryu

THE MATING GAME

They drew their pictures
And once so armed sallied forth
Obliviously

Sleight Of Hand: Cinqku

SLEIGHT OF HAND

Listen
Warily
Entertainment
Can be used to disguise
Intent

A Brave Face

A BRAVE FACE

We show them our best
Knowing they will discover
The rest on their own

Meanwhile

MEANWHILE

Perhaps best assume
This is as good as it gets
For how would we know?

Hearts

HEARTS

He plays the queen of hearts
She moves her castle – Check
Though she has a queen too
They play two different games
