Some Day You Will Be a Phoenix

Work Text:

Your Las Vegas life
is like dry ice, burns you cold --
cold like the Vegas
desert at night -- deadly cold --
deadly cold like you are now.

Dirty compromise:
to be a good cop act the
mob guy, act the boss.
Don’t think about Chicago –
let go – that’s all over now.

Some day you will be
a phoenix rising from this
cold fire, but for now
you can’t fly and you can’t cry --
you can only die inside.

In dreams you have a
peaceful moment – you dream of
something warm and red.
Then awake you remember:
let go – that’s all over now.

Some day you will be
a phoenix rising above
Vegas city lights.
Some day you may be reborn
under healing northern lights.
