Plasma Nights

By Tom Leonard

seductive bright light
of the evening narrative

ease of habit
the need to relax

we all need a break

so it goes
day into night

something to talk about
social cohesion


which is entertainment
which is value

which is passing time
which is bonding

movement on the retina
movement in the brain

which is

processed information
spectator dialogue

plasma brother


by bombs
we occupy

the dominant narrative

for subjects

far away
who may envy us

if seen
on their screen
