right hand pointing

Friday Night (in Hooper, Nebraska)

The shopkeepers have all gone home to blue cotton pajamas
And dreams of the honeyed ham to be served at tomorrow's Redeemer
Leaving fluorescent lights pulsing in every store window on Main Street
To blind the pressurized teenagers in dull-painted junkers in search of anything
But finding only squirrels left flattened without epitaph on the asphalt.
