Tells that Show

never show

your hand

when playing cards
–particularly suits

–especially face cards

and certainly not the suicide king. . .

best to keep those gloves on



the flower queen instead. . .

forfeit deuces

on demand,

but hold onto one-eyed jacks

& up the ante

by sporting shades

–crowns have no visors–



color-blind eyes


that might mistake

a spade

(that digs)


a heart

(that doesn’t)

–and if you do

don’t tell.

roll over


w roll on

–when available–

Dialing in


–and my advice is that you check this often, double-check this even–

since dewy

(but it’s your call)

is what the

dead give away.
