Poems By Richard Lighthouse
tomorrow will bulldoze tonight

don't go back to the hotel,
my brain says
keep driving westheimer.
soak it into your veins
like a summer storm.
strip club girls
smile and wave.

which light is the right direction.
waiting for a sign. any sign.
just keep

the crayons in my mind scream
neon is a lie.
rain washes thundering
over cars releasing
colors in a box.

shake that pretty ass baby
tomorrow will bulldoze tonight.
