Neon Flow

Egged on by voices, not of their own
They race head on
Through streets lit with fire
Chasing neon cascades past upstairs clubs.
A parade of life daring to exist
In a world collapsing with every struggling breath,
Clogged lungs coughing up onto pavements
Bereaved thoughts left to sit in shop doors
Rattling cups for any chance of change,
Deranged beliefs spewed across countertops
Stuffed into pockets along with tickets
For midnight…
