  1. 85 of them lay on the tiles, filling each space like a marker of an ancient game. She shoots at them with a gun, firing placebo bullets into the 80 pound paper. She kills their messages with her eyes only, even if the gun is in her hand. Even if she hears the boom.

  2. The polished knob turned easily beneath gloved fingers- I observed dust motes turning in the sunlight falling through well-cleaned windows The thin girl sitting in the corner rose and moved to the fireside as I entered — there is a gentleman downstairs I said – his card Miss…

  4. There aren’t many cards anymore. Everything comes virtually. Messages on fake walls, a few lines in an email, if that. But I miss at least one. Every year, the one time I could count on my parents to say the words they couldn’t say otherwise. Well, at least hide them in a scrawl between two pages. We love you, we are so proud. They say it now, quickly, at the end of skype calls. I duck out of the way, never having learned how to respond.

  5. Cards play, cards dance
    with faces they sing
    and stab each other
    in the hearts
    they steal each other’s diamonds
    and beat each other with clubs
    to steal treasure they bury with spades
    blacks and reds hide against midnight
    the colors of a dark heart
    play into the night, gambling for lives
    lost and won
    never reaching a victory

  8. She plays Solitaire a lot more now than she used to –well, there’s no one else to play cards with now, is there? Not here, that’s for sure — but she still loses most games.

  10. Cards like Birds in the high winds, they blew from some tourist stall down at the wharf, now they fly as beautifully for a moment as green parrots. Who would they have gone to otherwise? Better the wind and the bay than great aunts and cousins who would throw them away.

  11. I lay them out, king, queen, Jack, ace, all in their little houses, and watching them grinning back at me in their curious little ways I think that perhaps I too am in a game of solitaire.

  18. They were playing cards the last time she saw him. Laughing around the table, stealing secret glances at each other, talking through their eyes. The next day, he was gone, like smoke in the wind, leaving nothing behind but burning eyes.

  19. Jensen reached into his pocket and withdrew one of his cards and it was then that he got a real close look at his fingers, or what was left of them. He opened his fingers and the card just stuck to his index finger all by itself. “How about them apples,” he thought to himself.

  24. “Shut up and deal the cards,” Stephanie said as she sat down at the table. Melinda shrugged, picked up the cards and started dealing them, but a deck of seven birthday cards made for a truncated, and confusing game of Canasta.

  25. “What I really want to know,” Mr. Thompson said, “is about romance and also about my Cat-A-Life invention.” Miranda shuffled the deck and laid out the nine-card spread. “No, I’m afraid it’s not in the cards,” she said. “You won’t meet a tall dark stranger. You’ll end up with a short, blond neighbor. You won’t make millions with your invention of the computerized cat that wants food, scratches the furniture, and actually wets a litterbox with oil from its servos. Instead, you will invent the Cat Reincarnat-a-Tron, and the name describes it very well. You know those nine lives cats are supposed to have? Well, you’re going to make that, for real.”

  26. I don’t like cards. Boring stuff. It sounds like such a lie. Often ugly. Always shy and reductive.
    Never complete.
    I wish someone sends me one.

  27. Cards are often given with gifts, and people often expect them for celebrations. Cards can make people feel things, and mabe it’s the emotional attatchment for the pictures, words and quotes that are on cards. They can make people happy, sad and feel love. Cards make an appreciated gift, even when given alone.

  30. house of cards
    fragile
    stilted laying
    one upon another
    kings
    queens
    all as one
    for all their power
    delicate and defenseless

  31. Ik voel de kaarten door mijn handen glijden, geniet van het geluid dat ze maken terwijl ik ze schud. Als ik er nu aan terugdenk vraag ik me af hoe het ooit zo ver heeft kunnen komen. Veel mensen die hetzelfde probleem hebben hoor je klagen over een slechte jeugd. Ik niet. Als het geen slechte jeugd is, dan wel een traumatische gebeurtenis. Ik niet. Ik weet niet waar die onbeheersbare drang vandaan komt om te gokken, ik weet alleen dat ik me zonder deze kaarten een niemand voel.

  34. I wrote a card to Pat the other day. Its not the first card I’ve ever written to her. Ever since I’ve gotten to college I’ve written her. Shes somebody who I could never call on the phone. Both of us are better on paper.

  35. Cards? I love cards. I live and breathe cards. Cards for purchasing groceries. Cards for removing cash from an automated teller machine. Cards to identify myself to others in business. Cards to send to say hello, or I love you, or thanks, or congrats. Cards to pass the time in a game of chance. Cards to write the recipe on and file away for another day’s dinner. Cards.

  36. Birthday cards. Valentine’s cards. Christmas cards. New Year’s cards. Usually for happy occasions. Home-made ones are the best. And they’re not terribly difficult to make, either, if only you’d bother to put in a little effort.

    By Rushtail on 02.20.2011

  37. Cards are useless words, with no meaning. Cards are filled with faux-love, faux compassion and lies. Cards are the centre of our universe.

  38. i’d heard your name through the telephone lines
    thoughts of all i’d wanted to say and had said
    etched on index cards
    birthday cards
    thank you cards
    cards just to say hello
    and none of them are in your hands
    but tucked in a box under the bed
    these lost cards
    unknown cards
    deep

  39. I wouldn’t know I’d eventually grow to love him in all his 2d glory.
    I wouldn’t know I’d need him even though he is quite whor-e.
    But in the end I needed him
    My wonderland prince of spades.

  40. Cards are dumb and useless, a waste a paper, a waste of words, a waste of colour but despite this, I’m still filled with joy when I receive one.
