The Word for May is Play

To play, to see a play, a play on words, play nicely, play unfair, play with fire, child's play, play possum, play a trick, play it by ear, play a sport. Add a suffix and expand the possibilities.

It's still in play.

Do I look backwards to playing Take a Giant Step or Ringolevio in the Bronx?

Do I recall seeing off Broadway plays and then stopping at a cafe to play at being a critic?

Do I play with palindromes? James Joyce in 1922 coined "Tattarrattat" to describe someone knocking on a door?
"I was just beginning to yawn with nerves thinking he was trying to make a fool of me when I knew his tattarrattat at the door."

There's so much play in these possibilities? I'll just play around this month.
