  1. Great quadrille! That use of ‘again’ in the first line is key and applause for the color symbolism. (Doesn’t hurt that this takes me back to my favorite cat’s eye – orange as a tabby. Best one in the box.)

    1. Thanks. Yes, I was playing fast and loose. Hoping people recognized the echo of that phrase, but not enough to try and work it out. Especially since this poem seems to be at a solar level of macro scale, lol!


  2. I haven’t played marbles since school so this use of ‘spoiler’ made me smile. The final lines reminded me of a book I read years ago, The Dice Man by Luke Rhinehart (George Cockcroft).

  3. I like God playing a game of skill, focusing in on… us. For keeps, for watchcare. A nice antithetical to what Einstein really meant in his famous quote. We just don’t always recognize his hand until it claims us. I really like this quadrille parable
