Climbing Banisters Of Stairs

Don't send me a charade in dark
of insanity and nightshift quirks
bury me straight up with gin
so that I can listen to Caruso
in my oak portmanteau

Next to mortals I have sinned
tippy toeing through the dust
in a pantomime of spirits
playing on the Victrola
of my last encore

As the cello whispers a specter
knocking at my door
with pneumonia's cough
of death's melancholia
touching memories we sung

Climbing the stairs of sorrows
as the banister wends
bury me straight up with gin
so that I can listen to Caruso
in my oak portmanteau
