#80 from the pendulum

Hinged with finery
Rising tidal waves chasing victory
Bidding noises in succession
Going... Going... Gone
Inside this tinny lingering echo
Onward voices from the past
Citizens of night skies
Doubting in winning the hand
Of sweetened pots on nickel betting
Hide your money in your sock drawer
Violins in concert string us along
High hands tingle in space
Holding cards in sweaty fingers
Checking new faces with telling marks
Vision shines in honest eyes
Hitting hands often lie
Like tight fitting shoes
Tongues held on the floor
With civility
Hinting gives you inside winks of truth
Into the lies
