an hour at the slots

I found myself here
bored
looking to
fall ass backwards into
monetary salvation
not unlike
the group of red hatted
ladies scattered about
this room of irritating lights
with its putrid air
its chimes and its bells
all perfectly tuned
to the key of C
me with my hope
riding on about nineteen
bucks in loose change
them
pissing away their
social security
one nickle at a time
