First Trip to Las Vegas

America’s largeness
in lights

ethereal magic
and topless dreams
blazing machines
penny slot siren maze
eyes glazed
for days

pit upon pit
—trimmed greens
for your cash—
bill-breaking towers
in faux gold
a tiny taste
for young and old

stamped upon the thirsty land
oasis of illusive plenty

advance and decline
in one gleaming gift

cheering on
our own great blazing burnout
one bet at a time
