Ignorant Illusions

Originally published November 6, 2013

Ignorant illusions
fall on the hot cement like an empty bottle
breaking into a thousand pieces
shining in the neon lights
pretty pictures catch flame
and burn quickly
releasing acrid smoke into the moonless sky
leaving nothing but memories
stained by ignorance
