Power Outage Haiku

  • Started 1 year ago by cuembygi

  1. One eye opens as
    Silence nudges me awake.
    No clock. No light. Damn.

    Enveloping black.
    Sour chirps of smoke detectors
    Oh no. Power out.

    Timeless dark clocks stare:
    An existential time out.
    How long will this last?

    Dormant furnace ticks.
    Wifi OK: a life line
    WSBlog is there.

    Can’t look in fridge
    Oh hell: the enchiladas.
    What’s for dinner now?

    Pulling covers up.
    Heat and light promised later.
    Best to sleep it off.
