Fifty two

I fan a deck of cards and ask
To pick the one you think is us.
You scan our deck of days and say
“But this is so ridiculous.
One day, we were a two of spades –
Too tired from our daily jobs.
Another day, a six of clubs –
We sucked with glee on boiled cobs.
And then another, diamond ten –
We found our wealth in happy tears.
And then that day, a queen of hearts –
We learned to love beyond our fears.
So, even if you force me now,
To pick just one is very hard.
I swear, this is no gendiri.
I see an us in every card.”
