Cold coffee cups join the dots of silent hours
paper strewn like cast off thoughts
a whiskey glass with a lipstick kiss says goodnight to hope

As dark escapes across floodlit lawns
the day crashes in and the sun pans out to wake the dead
meat wagons round up the filtered human tide

The black washes clear and leaves only shale
yesterday now an ocean of lost opportunities
swirling away beyond all reach

Today is like a castaway
and what brought you here lies wrecked off shore
you light a fire and wait for rescue

  1. Hi Ray, David, the audio is working fine with me guys. You may have to upgrade or reload your Flash Player Ray if it is not working. Just make sure you have the latest version Ray. Hope this helps.
