Don’t tell me
how you’re suffering,
we’re lucky.
is off, but we have water,
food, and gas to cook.

We’ve got books,
candles, flashlights, games.
Others lost
every piece
of clothes, furniture, photos,
cars,entire homes.

After a week,
our lights came back on.
Others died,
don’t complain
about your iphone’s charge
or gas ration lines.
