Neon published at The Toucan

NEON, one of my very first efforts, since the brilliant and talented James Lloyd Davis encouraged me to begin writing again, appears in both the online and print edition of the The Toucan's lucky #13 edition.  Liz and Laura, two very wonderful, wacky women are so much fun to work with!
                            by MaryAnne Kolton

as she goes about she has no idea of the violet-blue neon sign
flashing on her forehead – needy – off – needy –off
she believes men are attracted to her for herself
she does not understand that the sign
translated into man-speak
flashes – vulnerable – off –vulnerable – off
many mistakes are made
and she is puzzled by the fact that all these associations
end badly
