a man attached to a transformer

2010-10-22

a man stood attached to a transformer

both hands on the cable in the glass rings

he said to me: 'i wish it was warmer'

this was absurd; live were the power strings:

all through him ran the electricity,

he was a great white-hot burning statue

doing this with a strange complicity

but before he was gone i said 'me too'
