A Set​-​Up From The Get​-​Go

from by Marks



Kingside to castle. Queen aged to hassle dead pawns to pass on. En passant. Rookies are leading horses to feeding from heads still bleeding from their hands for cheating.

Runaround in circles on square one once again. Turning down a champion to play myself and win. Beginning to begin and ending in the end.

Woodpushing daisies through dark, empty alleys to their deaths by allies with malaise. Summon Caissa to question minutiae. What answers lie in a trebuchet maneuver miniature repertoire?

Be still. Be strong. It won't be long. They're on their way here. Don't fret. Don't fight. There is no time. They're on their way here. It's perfect. Checkmate.
