BETTING, Poetry by Agbaakin O. Jeremiah

 Genre: Life
—-

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.
