To Edward Michael O'Durr Supranowicz's previous piece To Edward's next piece
A Kite in the Rain She cursed Ben Franklin For flying a kite in Some long ago rain, Cursed Thomas Edison For all his utilities, Cursed the idea Of monthly electric bills. "Life support" is a funny term. It almost made her laugh, But she jerked that impulse out - It was only 120 volts, Not quite the lightning Of life and death, The thunder of natural grief. Some non-conductive Papers were signed, And a doctor pulled the plug. And she felt the Electric in the night air, Perhaps what remained Of her mother's breath.
