“Lost in neon Californian dreams, she looked down at the grey ground and sighed. Dazzling sunlight bounced off the multi-coloured graffiti all around her, but she didn’t see it.
Sparkling light lit up the worn door of the Rex Launderette, behind her, with psychedelic ferocity. She turned from it and looked out towards the bus-stop.
Fluorescent trash danced with her stiletto with a flourish…she kicked it off…
Blazing lights flashed by, glittering in the sun. She closed her eyes.
Her thoughts were hallucinations of lost memories and a past life. She was so lost in her Californian Dreams that she couldn’t see the neon brilliance of now”.
