Bright Like Neon Love - Poem by Justin Tallman

With city lights
neon and blinding
yet hypnotizing
behind sunglasses
at night

Flash and flair
popped collar
edgy and unaware
that all this might end
some minute
or someday

Clubs, bars
people, places
drugs, alcohol
all under
a nicotine cloud
looking for that
sparkling moment
meant to define
a life

Bright like neon love
never questioning why
we get pumped
during the setting sun
and wake up
hung over
tasting perpetual
lipstick bliss
heartbroken
but still going along
with the trip


Poet's Notes about The Poem

This poem was completely inspired by the album Bright Like Neon Love by Cut Copy. The title of the album for some reason really sparked something in my mind so I decided to write it down on paper while listening to the very album. I admit, I hardly feel like this is my work at all but I'm glad I took time to write it down.
