snake eyes, by MARC OLMSTED

When I hear she died I figured drugs
her heart’s wound fit a needle perfectly
one of those beautiful women that
proved this vortex called
“the house always wins”
once I wondered if she literally had snake eyes
she was so high they seemed golden, demonic, haunted
(no exorcist on site)
she took the cure but the cure didn’t take
except for the one
that took her out
