Las Vegas

Violation and depravity,
within isolation of this valley,
an extravagant medicine to take.


We pace the boulevard,
with no moral compass, neither
north or south in strip-sleazed haze.


Rolling violent dice
of drunken incomprehension,
morning sirens sing out my sin.


but the more I kneel before you,
the more you raise me to my feet.


What happens with us, stays with us.

morning sirens sing out your poetry as well as your sin
I will stake all I have to learn the secret of what happens and stays then take it to my grave.

Hi Katy.Once more you do not fail,but what do you think of-

'rolling violent dice
of drunken incomprehension.
sings out my sin'

fantastic lines! (just a little suggested reshuffle-but then again,what do we doddering wordsmiths know?)
