Bleh with Barry

Random with a cynical twist of lime.

 A Chance Occurrence

Ode to Halflife by O’Rourke


The blue square of light

In the window across the street

Never goes dark—

Sometimes it flickers

As if a moth flutters about it

Still it shines—

People pass by it

Making grim silhouettes

Yet it glows—

The light went out today

But a shrill sound and flashes of red

Filled its place—

           –and went quickly
