This Week's Poem

Power Outage

Tonight a piano
counters the chill
and silence
of a house still standing.

and lifeless power lines
snaking paths
through the frost.

Candles upon which
we love tenderest
lining like a runway
the edges of things.

And the somber keys,
black upon white,
warning us
of an icy landing.
