Power Pole

Posted by Frank Obrigewitsch, SJ in Our Culture

Power Pole

The power pole suddenly appears

in the summer of ‘53.

Innocuous in the day,

its yard light illuminates

only house, barn, and shed

drawing a clean line for night.

I hesitate at its edge,

run in the dark,

slam the chicken house door,

and race breathlessly back.

Looks like me Frank. Imagine having my picture taken with the power pole.
