The light bulb went out in my room the other day.
I can’t specify which day because…
It went out with out warning.
Usually light bulbs have their final flash of brilliance before they go out, but this one didn’t.
It just ceased to function one day.
Never caring whether or not it was hurting me in the process.
I won’t hold a grudge.
The only question now is…
Do I replace this light bulb?
Or do I leave it where it is, and make do without light?
Gloriously preserved under its lamp shade.
