Poetry by Michael Waite


The grand facade of many faces
Makes tough to tell who holds the aces
and distant memories of hands played
beguiles the hearts of many spades
and when the dealer lays it down
the king on table holds his crown
cause once the hand is cursorily glanced
all players share an equal chance
to play or pass raise or call
your final bet could win or lose it all.

Michael Waite was born to Richard and Alicia Waite on November 22, 1973, in Northridge, California. He was educated at San Diego Community College and graduated in 1996 with a degree in Legal Studies.His pursuit in life is to live a rich and content life free from the chains of his own thoughts. His inspirations in writing are Ernest Hemingway, Robert Frost, John Steinbeck, and Edgar Allan Poe. His beliefs are that this universe has an ultimate order and sequence and someone put these elements in to play. Hopefully one day he can meet this individual.
