Hookm

We sit

in pairs

while the Hakem

calls hook and we

organize our cards,

faces falling with the

deal.

 

The first card drops –

plop! and three more

follow, eyes like hawks

to catch the lazy

cheater.

 

You grimace, drop

your queen – it’s a

risk, you have so many –

and I grin, say:

“Hook chibood?”

and throw down the

cut.

 

We count hands

and lie about the

score, chasing the

Hakem and seven

wins.
