That was nice. And the ending words quite interesting :)
It certainly is a game. But the rules are far from clear!
Games people play on the meat market. I never did understand how it worked.Still don't.
Even when you are not writing 'stories' you are..i love that about your poetry..enjoyably voyeuristic..
Not quite sure of the rules either - maybe that's why no-one wanted to play with me. (Boohoo.)Anna :o]
Very well conjured.
good twist love your poetry
I didn't even notice the three words until I got to the end. You paint a vivid picture.
