Teen Suburban Commentator steps to the curb

The power has been out for seventeen hours now.

It’s 9:15 in the morning and all these people are

standing on their curb.

like they want to know if their world changed

while they were asleep.

Maybe the world changed,

but mostly because everyone’s

by the roadside

this morning.
