Sure Thing - For Chinaski’s Alter Ego

by David Mac

Ignore the horse hooves
and the gods

Ignore the deadly flush and
the good hand
It never is
your hand

Ignore the screaming dice
The way they land
They never land

Ignore the black bird moan
The odds and the
sure thing

There’s no other way
to say it

This life’s a gamble
hard and slow
with losing upon losing

till all that’s left
is the unavoidable win
in the end

the only thing
that’s worth betting on at all
