Bacolod Brownout

Power, interrupted.
Full show, silence.
A splash of the darkness,
A much needed moment.
Just me and the beam of the flashlight
Chasing walls and watching
One circle at a time.
Battery-fueled windows of sight
Little bits, fragments of everyday life.
Ceiling, blank
Walls, inked
Mirror, blind
Door, locked
Alone in the absence of color
Aware in the presence of all

LIGHTNING, no thunder.
Lights, on.
Flourescent moon
In a lizard-studded sky
Songs of the idiot box
Come-ons of electrical temptation
Turn them all on

Go. Moan. Scream. Tell me if you like it. Make some noise.
