Times Square at Night by A.J. Huffman

Midnight explodes
in electric neon, brighter than the sun.  Digital
screens flash like stars above denizens destined
for everywhere and nowhere.  They trail each other
like comets, falling off at random intervals
into subway stations and cafés.  This place holds
the gravity of past, present, and future, rolls them
like credits across a billboard.  One blink
and you are sold.  Be sure
to drop your soul at the toll booth before
you wade in.
