Egyptian Rat Slap*

Smack.
A sandwich squished.
Slam.
White imprint on hand.
Folded legs tingle
But bodies’ attitudes
Change inner performance.
The price of splitting seconds
Is needles in your veins
Perhaps we’ve never visited
the pyramids or seen the sphinx
But we’re ridding Egypt’s vermin.

*Egyptian rat slap is a card game somewhat like a more complex version of slap jacks.
