What once was man is melted away
yes wax melted and gone, worn
down like sneakers on pavement,
smeared across the sidewalk of ages,
here lay the echo of what once
was the roaring sea, and the
fire that burned deep inside of me
is a smouldering heap;
just hints at the long drive to the
desert that reared me, and
though screaming and scared
I proudly admit that
I never asked to be here,
I didn’t read the fine print
because I never put my name –
so in forty years I’ll see you at
the last Nevada sunset
after I cash in my chips
and pay off my debts.
