Salvation Under a Streetlight by Ken Allan Dronsfield

Salvation Under a Streetlight     by Ken Allan Dronsfield

as an old song with no name

such is the soul without purpose

dancing in Broadway musicals as

Gene Kelly sings in the autumn rain

fleabag hotels line the main strip

rooms for rent by the night or hour

blue lights flashing in a neon haze

hookers work the red light district

shaky be those on a red eye flight

baggage claim dead to a ticking clock

waiting are those for a final destination

praying for salvation under a streetlight.
