Neon

dreams cling to neon signs
& drip
from the city’s countless eyes,
dismissed.

i blink ~
tape butterfly wings
to wishful words, while
tomorrow endsย in yesterday
& night takes hold.

fly…

    And…”fly…”…if you only knew how much the lowly fly has been coming up for me lately…

  3. Woooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooow!

    This is the best piece you’ve ever written. It almost makes me want to cry!
