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

intimating

(imitating)

the flower queen instead. . .

forfeit deuces

on demand,

but hold onto one-eyed jacks

& up the ante

by sporting shades

–crowns have no visors–

concealing

furtive,

color-blind eyes

–eyes

that might mistake

a spade

(that digs)

for

a heart

(that doesn’t)

–and if you do

don’t tell.

roll over

brows

w roll on

–when available–

Dialing in

dryness

–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.
