THE COST IS LOSS

Fortune’s ticket:
when the flowers bloom,
so will great joy in your life.

The camellias are in a premature bloom.
In my cup, a trifecta:

Dark magenta, a taunt of Damocles.
Pearl white, like a job, a tantalus of white whale.
And the third ordered bet, innocence’s pink–
the greatest fear of all, the one of loss.
