No Power

by Harry Wasnak

When the only working electronic in your house is the solar powered calculator you’ve had since 3rd grade, you know you’re fucked.


    Snowed in. 6 inches. No power.

Read a book? Sun’s down in an hour.

Go outside? Went out earlier, too cold now.

Smoke? No weed, no cigarettes.

Watch a movie? No power.

Listen to music? No power.

Do laundry? No power.

Clean up? No power, no motivation.

    Masturbate? Ding, ding, we have a winner.

…No porn. See how the ol’ imagination’s running today…

No power.
