POST APOCALYPTIC APOCRYPHA
(10/14/10)


they are
always
interesting
scenarios

what
would the world
be like
once catastrophically
decivilized
depeopled
due to disasters
either natural
or manmade

you never
know
until it happens

you never
know
what you
would do
unless
you are
there

or unless
you prepare
in advance

some
already
distance themselves
from conveniences
from others
as a part
of their daily
routines

they
are the ones
who will look
at the day after
extreme devastation
as just another period
to be muddled
through

by keeping
everything
everyone
at a distance
they are unencumbered
with connections
from their
current lives
to carry forward
to leaner
times

social
freaks now
they will be
the most
mentally stable
of the survivors

maybe
the eventuality
never comes
to pass

but better
to be
standing tall
calmly staring
into a distance
of destruction
than crippled
crying over
a crumpled
photograph
of yesterday
