Gambler Winnings

On tilt goes full stilt
Sideways conversation
Made up by button down
Anodyne mortification

Salt bats fly blood routes
To the cages where the wheel spins
Cards, sharks, and sucker-fish
Parasitic brain chemistry

Mordant modifications by eager heads
Prevailing truth to towers
Darkness oxygenated to remain
Moats floated in but not out

Sarchasm between irony and comity
Soporifically delivered by trance
Too high and then slept low
The shame won't leave your body

And thus, yet, heretofore 
Legally speaking, it's your money
Do what you will, diction or advertising
Where you just might take the house home
