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 . . .

lmoGGu It as not that I want to copy your web site, but I really like the design and style. Could you let me know which design are you using? Or was it tailor made?

fRrEz7 Excellent read, I just passed this onto a friend who was doing some research on that. And he actually bought me lunch since I found it for him smile So let me rephrase that: Thanks for lunch!
