So Readily


went to bed praying for more vocabulary

woke up to a new chess set.

black and white made their arguments in those same terms

and action almost won

without a single sound

but in joy finally gave in to ‘check’

before the eventual loss

to ‘mate.’

and that was the only time the right word

ever came so readily.
