♫♫ The Cash Register Song ♫♫

Cash Register Sings The Blues

By Maria Nazos

This isn't my dream-job. As a young sheet

of steel and plastic I dreamt of being melted

down into a dancer's pole in Vegas. I wanted

a woman in a headdress glossy as a gossamer

to wrap her lithe limbs around me. I wanted

to be strewn in lights, smell her powdery perfume.

Instead I'm a squat box crouched behind the counter,

noticed only if someone robs me. I'm touched all day,

but never caressed. Listen: somewhere gold tokens

spew from slots. I want to drink space-alien-dyed martinis on black

leather sectional couches. Watch tipsy women with acid-

washed jeans and teased hair dreamily press their faces

against slot machines while people treat currency

carelessly as spit in the wind.

I'm everywhere you look, ubiquitous and ignored.

I'm the container of your dreams that tossed aside my own.

I've kept my clean, sleek lines but you never say a thing.

Feed me, feed me with the only love we know.

It's Cod. We eat dry Cod here in Portugal, often.

These are cods hanging to dry. #3 was taken with three different exposures and then blended to get that result.
#4 - They were a great support during the all trip here. Thanks dear friend. smile

I've used HDR (three different exposures) to get that effect in the end. And the group was amazing too. Thanks Bethany
