brilliant dark

babalonshapes.pngbringing in the brilliant dark
as you take part in the sacrament
of desire building toward self
and renewal of all or nothing
double down on enlightenment
and place your bets on red
go all in or go home
as the man said
no one here gets out alive
so take your money or
live your life alive
knowing you took a chance
worth taking a life
in exchange for a denarius
and the one they crucify
will be you
nailed to the cross
of five and six
and eleven wins
zero losses the fool crowned
and everything comped
you’ll be dining with Sinatra tonight
and he already knows your name
have you met our hostess
