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 –

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.
