Old black Phoebe

“good playin’ shuffleboard wit’ ya”
Phoebe laughs,
“I mean against ya”

It’s another Friday suppertime
down at The Swamp
and we are heading for the cars

between shots Phoebe’d clucked
about the old black magic
she would bring

I let on
I already knew

my ten point lead
in a fifteen game
was something she could do
