Island of the Day #2335

Lampposts are there to keep the world anchored in place. After sunset the streets will melt away, trees will recede into shadow, strangers on the road will vanish into the dark, and soon enough it might seem like nothing exists at all; you become just a bundle of proprioception floating in the void.

Happily, we have these lampposts carefully planted across the planet, and their light holds fast to the things it can reach. Their islands stand firm in the sea of night, and as the sun rises the world can regrow from the pieces our lampposts protected.
