trying to consider the difference between
the right and the useful
after mopping up large pools of piss
with blue old-corporation paper towels.
We pass the Rainbow Casino.
Imagine velveteen inside with yellowing leaf hands
shaking on green baize and outside painted lifeless white.
Nothing more shows up till after my stop.
A little later, the door will close on unhinging evening rain
and I'll be properly done in.
No serious kind of Cartesian, me;
blurred person on blue sofa in this room.
