Those Low Down Casino Blues   1 comment

Wild Horse Pass Hotel & Casino Libby — Image by kenne

He set late at night,

in a “Nighthawks” setting

wishing the night was day —

busted, with those

low down casino blues.

No hotel room, and

you know it’s an’t easy

with these blues

knocking him sideways —

he’s at the ATM, confident

his luck has changed

and the trumpets will sound.

Dozing at the Pass,

laying awake dreaming, of a 

wild horse ride to paradise,

carrying him through

the blue waters,

awakening —

will the nightmare

never end, so he can

just fade away?
