[underlined]CHESS[/underlined]

Huddled round stove
To warmth of knee
I plot pent cunning
In harmless
Brain murder
Noting his hair
Above taut mind
Needlessly
I see the
Tumbled swinging
Smoke from cigarette
And burn scar on
My hand
Master a while
The power I take
I match brain vigour
To latent wood
And wonder thinking
Me futile
Less than pawn
Knowing no mover
And no win.

21 Jan 45
