"I spent 30 of my 62-years of life in a federal prison," he told me.
During our conversation I asked, "So you play cards I see?" He smiled and replied, "Wanna play me in poker?" I laughed as I told him that I am not very good. "I'm the best, people didn't even play with me in prison after a couple of years because I would always win," he said with a slight chuckle.
Despite his good game hand, he had a lot of hurt in those squinted eyes and his toothless mouth.
"I'm not like a poker player. I'm not into bluff. My way is to look someone in the eye and tell them the way I'm intending to go. My cards are always on the table." - Tori Amos
