you toy with Luck
cloaked in a shawl
of overlapping probabilities;
stake your coins by their heads-to-heada.
but numbers can become apostates of logic
when statistics reshuffled, backslide
into the skin of Chance.
you ask how that could happen-
how a giants’ spine can be bent
within the silence of a seconds.
in Série A,
a third division side could demystify a favourite.
but frequency is like a slow stream
that suddenly bends around;
and screams waterfall into depth.
you don’t tame numbers like cubs
for that’s how to be screwed over and over again
by these jinn of numerals
giggling in the betting house.
