neon lights

on peroxide hair


                     eyes glitter


                                          don’t waver


low whistle in the air

keep steady, coast clear


                    forget the pain


                                         you’ll be safe


she can feel them now

clawing at her skin

         pretty girl

                  smile for me                    

                            what’s your name

                                     let me in


but up, up, up she goes

past flickering lights

          murky windows

                  over rooftops

                            drunken slurs

she floats up to meet her sisters
