Cards (an acrostic poem)

Chips were tossed into the pot as the round was dealt

Amber looked at her hand and a pair of kings stared back

Reaching for her chips, she tossed in her raise

Dudes wouldn’t know what hit them since she had bluffed the last two hands

She was surprised when everyone immediately folded

Empty (an acrostic poem)

Even as he threw the rest of his chips into the pot

Maurice wanted to vomit

Playing poker so well had earned him a reputation as a good professional

The river card guaranteed him the victory and the three million dollars

Yet he felt hollow knowing most of those winnings were going to the fixer
