Poem: Dead Electric

Dead Electric

Tangled wires laid limp
Dead power in their veins
Did they know what it was they held?

….An explosive natural force
Designed, harnessed and poised for purpose
To empower the dreams and plans of men
To destroy good or evil in its wake
To incinerate the night and the secret whispers that it holds…

But in a heap of tangled wire
In a drawer
In a closet
On a shelf

They languished there
But amused…
…..by reality TV

Dead electric
