Like when everything flipped upside down and the scream of metal on metal exploded the silence and the world churned around me, ground over sky over ground over sky, and then, with a thunderous crack and a crunching of glass and steel,  a twisted roof crushing me into a gutted floor, ground, I wasn’t surprised.
