Blind Again

He died smoking in a courtroom

A bit of a darkhorse

Behind her glass eye

The stenographer was delicious

12 gum chewing jurors

Snuff gravy

A flag frozen, starched dry by the breath of judges

Behind our fundamental throne

Above the sweating bricks

Beyond that, rusty gallows chains

Below the marble hall

Old Sparky smiles
