The Dragon Sleeps 13

a devastating fever

obsesses the mind

destroys the body

I boasted immunity

it pulses my veins

the deadly poison

gold fever

in a bar

a glass of beer at hand

staring holes into the air

the other chair could be empty

outdated hits

from the jukebox

a football event on the screen

old smoke

dusty men

tomboy women

and Indian girl

with long


tingles sensuality

I've found my share of the gold

Carssing hands

don't think!

Smiling face

push back!

Words like raindrops

don't listen!

Warmth expanding

forget it!

keep step!



tomorrow, you can cry.
