it is time
to return
the thesaurus
to the shelf

for too long
it’s been open
to the entry
for trump

we’ve found ways
around using
that expression
for one-upping

a card game
is entertainment
not governance
gambling life away

when everything’s wild
usual measures
and Calvin Ball
fall apart

following suit
is required
before trumping
limits enhance play
