Dawn Curfew

by grimbeau

Electric off for new

pole & cable till two pm,

so no internet,

phone, heat, cooker…sun out

though, or at least

simple Silence!


Make coffee eitherway.

The Burial at Thebes on

the cd-player…


…still no poles, thus no cables, thus no grub.

Ate crisps,

slurped cold coffee,

listened to Heaney, trapped.


About tooth-hurty

Power restored thanks to

Kerry & Belgrade

civilisation’s end

is rewired
