Skimming Vegas

April 28, 2008

out the window
of the Riviera
while we slept
the Stardust fell
to March
fireworks

in a neon
cloud
of dust
and mirrors
it was like
an old
goombah
leaving town

Counting Cards

April 25, 2008

under vegas lights
beside the fountains
of the Belliago
street corner
Mexicans
hand out call girl
photo cards
slap them
in their hand
like dealing from
the bottom

ten will get
you twenty

is just
a leftover
cliché.
