X-Ray In The Aftershock

Dawn told me
It couldn't work for we were different
Circuits direct and alternate

He stepped into the water anyway
Talk about getting feet wet

There was voltage in a shade
Quiet hum in a
Cold open window

What happened when he fell
Careful to protect me

Caring in another zone
Higher plane than people fly
Sensory above thought

He looked into the well
Soaked straight through

Electrocution follows now
Alive and live and life defeated
Lines meeting and lies sparking
Fire at work and at home
Loss of water and of life
How simple is the knife
