Place Your Bets
The board game waits years on an attic chair.
His finger draws a circle on its dusty box.
On the top is written THE WAGER
He lifts off the lid and unfolds the board as
dust rises in a light shaft. Printed on the board:
GOD IS YES NO
GOD IS NOT: YES NO
No dice, pieces, numbers, cards, chips, spinning arrows.
There is a single printed instruction below:
WEIGH THE GAIN AND THE LOSS
What the hell kind of a game is this?
He closes and plops it on top of a Monopoly game.
