THE TRICK IS—

Simply 
to go on—and however flippantly

keep lifting 
all of your 
switches each morning—one by 

one—with only 
the shallowest
inclination toward gratitude—heedlessly entreating 
warm and 

buoyant light
fixtures—

to once again 
rush down—and capriciously 
laugh at

such dark 
and cold hardwood;

but also 
to do so gravely,
tenderly—
and with deep appreciation

for each switch's off position—not to mention
compassion

for the way—in which 
those floors
begin blushing.
