Game, by Britta Benson

Here’s my response to this week’s poetry prompt on Brian Vos’s blog. Theme this week: Intuition. You can read his full post here:


Intuition, instinct, gut

or simply unadulterated anger…

Decisions manifest or not.

Minds keep tally.

Win or lose,

it doesn’t matter.

When I think I know,

I told you so,

fate smiles at my pathetic scoreboard,

then leans back and settles for the show.

Life’s force saunters at its very own leisure

through my little bets and safety nets.

I’m grateful, I play.
