Crap shoot in Vegas

crap shoot in vegas, poetry, steven humphreys

Throughout your fellow travels

lonely road

mysteries and faulty babble

friends and family

squabbles

sitting at tables

squeak

and

wobble

telling tall fables

and stories

sun-dried glory

egos

tiny and humongous

barge

in

on souls

amongst us

like a well drink

soused

crap shoot losing spree

in Vegas

uncle

drives away in his

smoking rattle trap car

forever afar

returning not

as you must again

raise your own

shaky

self-image

bar

forfeiting all known

and unknown

truth tellers and liars

when your cat

snuggled up

licks his lips

scratches his head

looking you

straight in the eye

over another can

of cat food

whispering

‘Hey Mack! Listen up! I got something I want to get off my chest before it’s time for bed!’
