  2. This is a delight. I also like the origami/fold word play.

    could read this a couple different ways…the game of hearts is def not for the faint of heart….
    letting them win is cool…putting them over you….then again, it can def be scary….nice job on the tenword.

  4. The double meaning of fold is extremely clever here… a truly wonderful ambiguity… Just like origami itself.

    I love “origami” as a verb … “origami stars.”

    Also, inside of “trinkets” is “try ‘n’ Keats.” You’re daring him to be a romantic poet. (Did you know he had only been published for four years when he died?)

    Check this out:
    “The medical attention Keats received may have hastened his death. In November 1820, Clark declared that the source of the illness was ‘mental exertion’ and that the source was largely situated in his stomach. Clark eventually diagnosed consumption (tuberculosis) and placed Keats on a starvation diet of an anchovy and a piece of bread a day intended to reduce the blood flow to his stomach. He also bled the poet; a standard treatment of the day, but was likely a significant contributor to Keats’s weakness.”

    Love games. This is the best. I just hope losing to him turned out to be a good experience. I think this could go either way.

  12. So relatable in so few words – in terms of giving your heart away but then being so worn out with the game (the trinkets and origami) that you give up (fold).

Use your words.
