To meet the croupier who could rolled it long
Draw you out of botany naming game
Of a Japanese made canopy of equations
last left in store by tourists for passing idle hands
While Hiding from mythical pollinators in the rain.
painting around stationary store Windows
the Japanese steaming hills above whilst you sleep
And can now no longer dream Marooned
in the flooding bunker of a electronic music scene.

Awkward silences broken by smiles
hands scribe after dark art verses
laughs Over red oxide vices and movie quotes
often unsugared and green spiced primed
stripes You keep trying to decipher.
