Gambit

A poem

Photo: Lisa Alletson

Tell me your mind
in the silent conversation
that takes shape
across our chessboard

Tell me the sweetness
of danger between us
when I fork
your exposed pieces

Tell me the thrill
running up your spine
when you move
and I pin you between us

Tell me in en passant
without words
as we nearly touch
but don’t

Tell me
your every
move with your mind
