Fields and Charges

It is time to understand the kind of power
that can click on and off across the barrier
of plastic outlets. Seriously, how does it work?
I’ve heard discourses on electrons and their
liberations, movements of dissociation
and divorce, felt the effects of their rebellion
on a careless finger, seen the magic
globes like bowls with goldfish lightning.
But I want to know the thing that makes things run.
