Night Lies

corner

Miz Quickly prompt 11 “An image for your thoughts”

 

neon lights, garish promises

loneliness wells, overwhelms

dark places, liquored dreams

she teases with practiced skill

takes off everything but a smile

plastered there till quitting time

It’s just a job, a blip on the road

to a better future for her

but the sod at the bar thinks it’s love.
