Standard

They lit the city
handed us neon markers
to create pristine graffiti
on glass boards
that easily wiped clean
floated multicolored lanterns
harmoniously in the harbor
projected dazzling images
on a wall of water suspended
outside a posh eatery

We walked past
strip clubs
crumbling buildings
decorated with profanity
and an inlet afloat in trash
to buy our crepes
watch a man eat fire
and revel in a blinding light
