Dream of You

Vegas the aftermath
of sunset
Vegas the slum
Venus you actually are

Vegas every night sleepless
Vegas your breath and your underwear
on the floor
morning already

Vegas my memory deceiving
Vegas Maryland Parkway
pancake makeup
Gigi mounting the stairs

Vegas the girl who could’ve
been anything

if it wasn’t for her daddy

Vegas the carpets rolled out
Vegas behind glass
a cab ride

Vegas the beginning
a wedding dress
and a fifty cent fur coat

Vegas white cross diner
and no stars but the ones
in the wet of your eyes

Vegas the armies
putting down their guns

to have a drink
and take a chance.
