verse

Electric-less

by Gregg Dotoli

when we walk electric-less
after desertgrow
after cyberflood
during climate carnage
electric quit electric quit
automation halt hit
and we alone with nature
walk electric-less
nightdark
decomputered
lightless
unsorted
unindexed
hungry and manual
sapient and feeble
eyes like moles
cyber-fractured brains
when we stumble electric-less
as electric dies
nature gloats over
our painful exit
surprised angels cry
earthring tears
panicky thunder cracks
as heavenly lightning reboots earth
