The Floor

by
 The floor is something we must fight against.
Whilst seemingly mere platform for the human stance, it is that place that men fall to.
I am not dizzy.
I stand as a tower, a lighthouse; the pale ray of my sentiency flowing from my face.
But should I go dizzy I crash down into the floor; my face into the floor, my attention bleeding into the cracks of the floor.
Dear horizontal place, I do not wish to be a rug.
Do not pull at the difficult head, this teetering bulb of dread and dream .
