He lived alone and was afraid of the dark
so hundreds of lights
were kept on
day and night
Not an inch of darkness was allowed
in his house
so the darkness had nowhere else to go
but went straight inside his heart,
dark darker darkest.
Then one day he committed suicide
leaving behind unpaid astronomical electric bills.
The next man who moves in
has to take care of that I suppose,
but for now it is all locked up and dark.
