CLXXXVIII

 

 

The Trader

always

glued

to computer screens

charts

data

news feeds

today on top

next day

bleed

wears the best threads

custom made Italian suits

silk ties

aim for luxury penthouse

that reaches towards the sky

weekends

hit casino

roll some dice

couple lines of blow

maintain high

ego becomes over-sized

contact

Dominatrix

expert at making grown men cry

deep down

not the money that nukes the veins

it is being in the game
