eleven hints (10)

to stand out from the rest is who you are.
you do not wear this like a crown; it is
more of a testament to what you've seen
than how you let it color your intent.

for much is ugly in this life, this way;
for we must live within our egosphere
and bloom where we are left to grow, or wilt,
as suits are disposition and our strength.

to stand out from the rest: your destiny.
for it is meaning that you freely give --
and knowing you has opened up my eyes
to just where joy can be, and in what form.

helping many,
fortune's favor
in
the

cards

it is nothing like 
he wants

precursors 
to a dance,
in hazelnut
and vague mismatched
capitulations.

he tells her that
it's all a dream;
she tells him all
her secrets

and everyone who watches
sees the game

it's just a scent,
an essence, but
the coffee has
intention

their difference
is what makes them

the same

eleven hints (5)

patter, pitter,
well, but bitter,
deep in throwing 
a no-hitter,
love the heat,
but hate the splitter,
quitting time,
but none’s a quitter

little good happens in
American courts,
little good happens
in American courts

sibylline
on triviata,
sails set on 
the day’s regatta,
got some hate,
but not a lotta,
travesties 
become errata 

little good happens in
American courts,
little good happens
in American courts,
of course things seem
out of sorts:
little good happens
in American courts
