Mordant Journey
PaulS

Black, black, black,
 1
black
 2
bus,
 3
driven by the Pirate King.
 4
I feel light-headed,
 5
I see a tattered ticket
 6
to Vegas.
 7
Damn cold.
 8
 
 
I am alone, so alone, no
 9
color.
 10
My ears are ringing—
 11
HellsBells—
 12
you're almost there dear?
 13
I'll be along soon.
 14
 
 
My hands are gone.
 15
I want to know,
 16
destination,
 17
I want to know, NOW.
 18
Mr. King reads my
 19
Mindlessness, throws his
 20
head into my handlessness  
 21
mouthing,
 22
 
 
feel your pulse.
