Whatís funny

 

People play blackjack

At green tables

Money being green

And the people are green

Playing in the greenness of the caves

 

The off lighting seems soft

Makes all the women feel beautiful

But you only notice them

When you first come in

And your pockets are stuffed

 

You feel a little like a charging bull

But later (there is no day or night here) you

Are stupefied

Just like an animal shocked with a mild electrical current

You may not be thinking right

 

You are being drained

You walk out emptied

The desert mountains are hot and blue in the far distance

You see the pools and the phony color

Everyone everywhere is a vampire
