Power Down~by Paul F. Lenzi



Power Down


“Powerless” by Tommie Olofsson

temperamental utilities
bane of a rural existence
dead lights and well taps
phones caught uncharged
ill-suited for life off the grid

bones and being unable to
move through the dimmed
cold milieu of old age stark
reminder that powerlessness
is the province of youth


  1. thank you for sharing my poem with your readers
