Keeping Score

The flip side of my triumph is your
Rueful irritation

The obverse of my failure is your
Joy in victory
Extraordinary or

The touches, tallied
Sum to zero—
Either way, the balance is
The same

The Powers that Be don’t care if you or I are
Only that the sheet is neat, correct
And signed

A lesson here
In cosmic disregard for our

So bugger them

Let’s change the
Nature of the game
Invent a different currency
That multiplies with every touch

As we test
And challenge
Amplify our repertoire
Arm our imagination

There’s no cap on
Insight and experience
A jackpot that pays out from
Every bout
