Boardwalk Magician

I am a slugged sum of rum and Coke
without any fixes – no bookings

or drag of attachments
that may – in others – weigh
too heavily – like small kids

But this is my trick – see –
Watch where your nickel goes
Look – it was always there!

My audience pays afterwards
only if I am good enough
It is a fair deal – I get to stop

when I want – they want magic
twenty-four-seven – a good deal
I have instant cash for rum and Coke
