WAR LIFE DEATH GLOOM THE POST APOCALYPSE

 

War Life Death Gloom The Post Apocalypse, a series of poems that read like a single epic poem.

Spanning the early day, when we all thought the war will pass, before the blasts, to the middle times of the cannibals, and the suicide of hope,

to the post apocalypse, and the children born into it, who grew up to rule  the new world. The era of War, The era of Life, The era of Death, The era of Gloom, The era of The Post Apocalypse.

EXTRACT

PRE DAWN GLOOM

Snow drizzling,

Freezing.

City, slowly, falling.

Skylines crumbling.

Sniper rifle on hold,

Webcams looking out into this broken world.

 

THE SURVIVORLIST

Deserted church,

Streaking moonlight across benches

Fluttering dust in the night,

Deep within flight,

Friends all dead.

No fight left.

Meat eating children of the new world

Minutes behind,

Howling out of their minds.

Last possible steps

Leading towards the alter,

Searching for salvation,

Unaware that there ever was a god

Unable to complete the steps,

Dead man’s trinity,

Sweating, cold, tired,

Fuck it.

Backpack dropped

Last real tobacco cigarette Lit,

Deep drags, savoring every bit

Grenade pin removed, pressure held.

Doors burst open,

Screams, and laughs, and howls, and tears.

Think about throwing it,

Realize how tired,

Last drag,

Exhale leaves with the finger release.

IN THE END

When the only other person

Who is alive dies alone,

On the other side of the world.

No booming voice from heaven,

Or smiling  sun

Will announce that you are the last man alive,

No animal will stand

And say

“Man,

I heard across the land that,

You are the last of your kind, my condolences”

No wind will whisper, or botany speak

“Your family is gone you are alone now child”

No one will say,

And no one will know,

Because,

The world is infinitely lonely
