Deck of Cards

play me right

choose me wisely

I could be one of two colors

but today I am black

am I spade?

am I heart?

I can never say

for this is an unpredictable

game

caress my crisp edges

kiss them

admire them

and

press them

against your neck

and then

watch as

I change colors

I’m no longer

a black card

because

your blood

stained me with red
