Broken Neon III

Splash of neon light. Neon glass shatters. A pale face looms out of the gloom. It shimmers into the night Smash of an engine's steel, A flash of sharp car headlights. Black eyes stare wide Crash goes the ruby taillights, sparkling. The crunch of black ice! A Machine in death throes Winter is here at last. Milky slim hands grasp... Sharp edges of ruined steal, cut! Mechanical auto-parts, tires, chrome, teeth n bones! Something ashen; a figure stands there... Under a spinning bright golden arc, sparks! If humanity is to blame? Human twisted forms fade away. We all go blind in the burning flame. As the car comes to a screaming, screeching silent halt! Neon shatters into the night. Flares, like stars drift down. …faces loom out of the nightmares gloom! Black Ice breaks, Auto-parts and mechanical hearts; Cascades, Resonates, Detonates Broken Neon; a coming doom.

My poems write themselves sometimes and evolve from one concept to the next. So come back reread my poems more than once you may never know if I will RE-write the whole of IT.
