made-up games

the day the blackout came
with nothing but a candle flame
they saw each other better
then they had in broad daylight
they played some made-up games
and laughed like the insane
they ate a lot of ice cream

and they stayed up late that nightboxing-gloves-1709174_960_720

the next morning at sunrise
the power was restored
they retreated to their corners
and went back to keeping score
