Shuffle – A Poem in Free Verse

You’re a card dealer

raking in chips.

A high roller

calling all-in or ante-up,

dealing trade-in offers,

ghosting the unknown caller.

You’re my cellphone,


stacking the deck,

with a full house of apps.

  1. Wow, you keeping it digital

    When I saw that word shuffle
    I thought of snatching a red wine bottle, slipping into my mustang mustard, take a cruise to the next roulette table, lose and win my chips.

    How this tiny apparatus called mobile has changed us drifters, with one click or touch of a screen, voila there you are at betaway. Lol

    The ghosting had me on the floor
    While you sit there inside your mobile. Doing your thangs with all your apps.

    Love the free verse shuffle

    1. Glad to hear that the “draw” of roulette got you all in to the lines…that was the plan..😊

      Yes, our phones..a necessity with all its trinkets and apps to help us navigate…
