Act 4: Like Exploding (Accepting) Neon (Dreams)


Like the ships built in bottled sand,
Passion assembled promise (piece by piece) in fragile neon tubes,
A promise of more than (or were it greater than?) the sum of its amateur hands,
Tracing careful lines to attract the open eye wide,
I attached skin to color, to expose a liar working for honesty, 
I connected power lines to sleepless nights, to illuminate the anatomy of distraction,
Than I built a glowing human sign (so I could sleep next to a glowing human), that reads "Look what I've built, it tries so beautifully".
