What would happen
If gravity suddenly shut off?
Would we be flung to space--speed of light--
Extinction instantaneous?
Would we float with sun-crisp flesh,
Ozone jumping ship?
Earth's highways, zooming, and
Oceans of bio-luminescence
And snapping turtle swamps
Would billow right beside us--
Concrete structures peeled from sidewalk
Like a scab being picked at.
