By Andrea Laws

shuffles the green
grinning at his reward as his
guilty client walks

nights turned sleep into
revealing a dawn of
unspoken formidable laws

justice provided a promotion
humbling a gesture to
money’s ice cream as

handshakes unravel chains
jingling child-widower tears as
unsolved bodies lay buried
