"The difficulty of literature is not to write, but to write what you mean; not to affect your reader, but to affect him precisely as you wish." ~ Robert Louis Stevenson

Chess Club

A silent room
Eight people there
You can feel the thinking in the air.
A sudden movement
A sigh of chagrin
Without a word
The next match begins.

~ Tamary Shoemaker
(From a prompt at Poetic Asides to write a poem where people interact without speaking.)
