self portrait (escher)

Time out of phase

    The lights flicker for just a moment.

    *thunk*

    A lightbulb, on the floor, has somehow survived it's inexplicable fall from above. It rolls lazily onto it's side...

    *crash*

    ...and abruptly shatters. I wonder briefly how the room is still illuminated, before...

    *zap*

    ...the filament burns out.
So, yes. The insides are still up there in the ceiling, being a fire hazard and threatening to electrocute whoever tries to install a replacement bulb.

That thought makes me uneasy.

As does the realization that I don't have any idea what could have caused this.

But, more than that, I don't know what's holding all the other lightbulbs together.

...do you suppose that's a bad omen?
