One day without electricity

lightning

One day without electricity,
I feel like a fish out of the sea.

without nothing whizzing, spinning and blaring constantly
makes my day go by quietly.

Without the internet which connects me to humanity
It feels like my umbilical chord’s been cut off abruptly.

I smile and wander at my inability
to live my life without electricity.

My phone is dead, my food is stale,
Ironing clothes piled up in bales.

My croaking voice is the only music I get,
Which I am sure my neighbors will object.

One day without electricity
I wonder how simple life would have been.
Without gadgets delivering my information instantly
I am sure my time would have been spent much more creatively.
