Lightning

It was 1 am
Yet a loud buzzing
Woke excitable dogs
And irritable neighbors
On and off then on and off
The power surged unsteadily
As if unsure
A grand light show
Of sparks and glowing lines
Drew screams of horror
From a growing audience
And I stood there trembling
Weakly calling for help
As my life flashed
In tandem with the lightning
Before my eyes at 1 am
