This game requires distance, and a way of counting that doesn’t include numbers. It requires that the women be arranged by size and that the men be arranged by their imaginations. Each time it is your turn you will be expected to add another color, one that the next player will not be able to recognize.

BOB HEMAN’s poems have been included in numerous anthologies including Contemporary Surrealist and Magic Realist Poetry: An International Anthology (Lamar University Literary Press, 2022), Alcatraz (Life Before Man, 2022), Escape Wheel (great weather for MEDIA, 2020), and A Cast-Iron Aeroplane That Can Actually Fly: Commentaries from 80 Contemporary American Poets on Their Prose Poetry (MadHat Press, 2019).
