the day we lost the power

the power went

between 2 thunderstorms;

the first while we played in the indoor pool

the second when the electric died

at 9:30PM.


I switched to touch

and pondered the power

that I still had:

in touch, scent, sounds, smells,

and tastes

and in other dimensions

divine and astral.


I saw into space

my feet grounded in marble

and the rocks of Westinghouse.
