Neon heart, day-glow eyes
The city lit by fireflies
They’re advertising in the skies
For people like us
There she was under the expansive sky, dark Black pierced with a myriad of yellow lights in a city lit by fireflies.
There was ambition in the breezes that entangled her soft, brown hair.
Blooming femininity, youth and the ferociousness with which her pen touched paper are expressions of a joy which is ineffable.
They were advertising in the skies, her words dancing in the air.
The city, her words.
It was her words that were moving the city.
Race cars, flash bulbs, where the past blurred, and future glowed.
The present was all there was—all there is.
