Rolling Luck

Rolling Luck

The marbles roll
on a patch of dirt–
colored transparencies
shine in the afternoon sun.

She watches carefully;
her big brown eyes
roll with the little marbles

deft fingers on small brown hands
shoot each marble toward the hole

in the center of a circle–

there is hope
of winning

in the square room
that sits unevenly
under a metal roof—her home
built to stand
but sure to fall
under the monsoon rain dance–

one can only lose,
without a chance.
