Oncor Haikus

Notes from the author: Woke up this morning, having trouble breathing. Looked up to check the time, and my projection clock was out. That’s when I realized my breathing issues were because my CPAP was not running. Took off my mask, and watched as the ceiling fan spun slowly to a stop. The power is out again.


Warmness engulfs me.
Ceiling fans no longer run.
Power out again.


Bleeding quietly.
I was shaving in the dark.
Blades of danger.


Messages flowing.
Oncor status emails sent.
Email needs Internet.


Living in darkness.
My world is in the shadows.
I am powerless.
