Full Tilt

Tilt for the tilt
In hopes of the tilt
The clang and clattering
Of money in the tin
Sounding success
For the masses to hear

Silence prevails
Against the backdrop of noise
Emotionless digital sound
Thrown out in a room of timelessness
Blinking lights and nostalgia
Rooted in despair

The tilt wins
Clouding the loss
In gulps of defeat
Erasing the memory
And prepping the soul
For one more, last, final pull
