When They Say

When they say it’s
a “slam dunk,”
it’s “in the bag”
or a “done deal,”
step back,
take a breath
pinch your skin,
feel what’s real.
Two offers,
“slam dunks,”
both “in the bag”
and “done deals,”
couldn’t hold water
as well as a
leaky fish tank.
It isn’t
a “slam dunk,”
or “in the bag,”
or “done deal,”
till the money
is in the bank
under lock and key
with armed security
and even special forces,
and navy seals,
and even then
just maybe.
