Sunday Read: 'Light Switch' by Adam Cecil

Illustration for Bushwick Daily by Tina Yu.

Light Switch

By Adam Cecil

there is a light switch in my bathroom that does not connect to anything.

i would like to think

(romantically)

that instead of being a dead switch,

it connects by a mile-long wire to a lightbulb in a woman’s apartment,

maybe in brooklyn.

i would like to think

that there is a light switch in her bathroom that does not connect to anything.

perhaps

she would like to think

(romantically)

that instead of merely being a dead switch,

it connects by a mile-long wire to a lightbulb in a man’s apartment,

maybe in harlem.

there is a light switch in my apartment that does not connect to anything.
