Calling Home After the News

The way my brother put it,
the power went first, just before,
and the yard went blue, and the glow held on them.

The VCR stopped blinking 12
and the motors each slowed or stopped to listen.
And inside, what? He didn't say. But the trees, he heard them
snapping like vegetables.

Careful not to press your face to the glass.
You have a lot of small things you'll miss,
which aren't worth listing.
I hope I'm one of them.
