POETRY


 

Neon

Allan Peterson

 

 

What is the question for which loneliness is the answer

 

Neon which cannot make compounds

 

Still it lingers over promises hopefully bright and alluring

 

and us among whom many are distressed

 

The red and green crescent that hangs and winks

 

above the Half Moon tavern hints to us of pleasure

 

overseeing our loving and thriving in oxygen

 

And people for allegiance cover their hearts and the sun

 

with the same hand both for protection
