Russell Edson - The Floor

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 . . .
