I Didn’t Think it Through
What Morgan doesn’t know is
that I’ve fixed the game,
marked the tiles I’m supposed to pluck
with little dots (in pencil).
On my tray, I have: M3 A1, R1 R1 Y4 M3 E1.
Morgan gets up to grab a blanket.
then peek at her letters.
She doesn’t have what I want.
In fact, she has some scary things:
an N1 and a couple O1’s.
