the fire flies

the heart of the city is ablaze
with the light of a million fire flies
electronic music clarions
a million heartless melodies
for youth to get old by
they have come
from hostelry or home
to prove they exist
as more than passing ornament
to the concrete where they kiss
but they don't
carefree cocksure cool they die
pledged in troth to a quick eternal
drunk with the glory of shining eyes
that waft a spell a touch infernal
from off the shores of paradise
