  1. L1 sets the theme and mood while Ls 2&3 read more like a vicarious pleasure of store shopping. The flickering [neon] light/L3 is understandably also reflected in the eyes of the N, a [window or store] shopper.

    And it might be interesting to do a thematic comparative reading of my haiku below:
