Gambit: a stratagem, scheme, or tactic. Life — and love — are full of risks. Sometimes we win; sometimes we lose. The important thing is to keep playing. The 26 poems in Gambit reveal the ways in which the gambit has paid off or has not, but the game of life — and love — must go on. The author offers these poems as chances to see life, and love, even destiny — in winning ways.
