old men playing chess
on a chilly afternoon
fumbling every move
~~ ~~ ~~
a glorious game
checkmate in only three moves—
the wily old man
~~ ~~ ~~
The petite player,
placing the white knight just so,
declares victory.

  3. A-ha sneaking in quietly…always a good tactical move 😉

  4. I guess I’m in loco parentis – shudder!
