nEon pApers


neon papers falling from
children hands in a kindergarten room
are placid goodbyes of delinquent
and parental guidance televisions

neon papers of cosmopolitan streets
are pieces of skins for sale at nights
when hungry mouths at home wait
for cheap bread and milk on the table

neon papers have written i love you’s
far from home when the outbreak of war
is desolation and the cold evenings
hide the stars and the moon

neon papers are us trying to send
signals of valid resignations from
bad offices of plastic bosses
bad offices of plastic bosses

    I love the spunk, the fight and the pain and anger held down until the final stanza, when you isolate the source and repeat it in the final two lines: “bad offices of plastic bosses. Good job, Chester.
