"It's about words, and words are all I have…"

SERVICE

OUT  OF   SERVICE

Elevator dreams   Modern Jacob’s Ladder?

Elevator operator God-like  Cables exposed

Swings wildly   does not stop on your floor

May not stop at all   May crash through glass

ceiling   or plummet into underworld

 

Last night we recognized each other  he smiled

a little too seductively   But I checked the cables

through the gap  & climbed aboard    He cannot

frighten me anymore   This mortal coil not his to

snap    Flamboyant and greasy haired   like husband #4
