Let’s Make A Deal

 

____________________________________________________________

 

 

 

Wheeler is a dealer

He plays the numbers, the roulette wheel of life’s

 

death

 

He exchanges amusement for your soul

 

Wheeler gets pleasure from ticking loudly

like a clock ticks

down

to the final second, o.ooooooooo1

when BOOM/DOOM occurs

 

Wheeler, the dealer

allows you to believe in all things possible

he lets you save a dime

in the small pocket of your pocket

but we know

that it doesn’t buy your life,

let alone

a telephone call

anymore

The only rule: write whatever comes to mind; improvise!

  1. I just love what you did with this prompt.

  2. Thanks… sometimes they come to you immediately and other times, they fester in your brain, not allowing them to make sense until AFTER you’ve written… and upon reading again, just now, I see this a little differently than as I was writing it. I’m not very optimistic, am I?
