“The Flood” / Memorable Fancies #2609

[“What is usable from the past” – Susan Sontag]

We set out to save whatever was worth saving. “Like Noah,” we said, “before the flood,” but this was 2019. We ransacked our world for the best things, things that the next flood would finally destroy.

Our collection grows.

We hear the coming sounds of our next deluge.

Too late, we understand that the flood is we, ourselves.

Our billions.

Billions
