Morning Commute

by Daniel Flosi

If, on my morning

commute, all the street-

lamps go out, and the city


under dark, long

shadows, were to

succumb to the pressures

of life without

electricity— where


then, would our eyes

turn? would the dandelions

still know up from


down, or would gravity turn us

inside out and swallow us whole?
