Pyrite

It's all so wondrous, so
effervescent and fleeting, the banner 
flown half mast, raised at half pride; the
Ante made
three times. Scorned; red
tide.
Hearts and diamonds- the effeminate: negotiate with
diamonds to ensnare the heart; hark.
the spade, the
club.
Shovel and blunt instrument, masculine and
black as the night sky. 
Pens and swords waging war in perpetual bliss.
Kings and queens, jacks and
diminutive fiends, marching towards the
joke that only Darwin knows is funny.
