#FlashTag @monologging @ “Leave the gun,” Leo said. “They’ll frisk us before the card game.”

#FlashTag @itsjaykyall “You got an ace up your sleeve?” His partner, Nell, asked as they drove through the Lincoln Tunnel.

#FlashTag@diranasaurus “Naw,” Leo said, “Something better than an ace.”

#FlashTag@ They parked in Midtown. Behind a grocery, there was a black door. “Joker beats an ace,” Leo said. Nell knocked.

#FlashTag @monologging The black door opened to reveal a ratty card table. “This is the way the world ends, Nell.”

#FlashTag @NairobiCollins Two jokers shuffle through the door into a stacked game. Nell’s hand: hot. Leo’s sleeve: ready. Black eye: coming.
