from the Annotated Apocalypse Project


A girl, a planet, an apocalypse

Annie Dillard’s million tiny apocalypses
under the microscope, a lens into a world

Beckett’s nuclear arsenal of language
not play, I’m serious

Make a treaty, break it
the earth suffers

like dominoes: one species after another, or simultaneous
weather, and resources

Break it: the earth is where we live
like pigs in fragile houses
brick also crumbles

especially brick made in contemporary
capitalism: cheap ass shit
built to sell, decay, disperse like a cloud
cumulus raining into landfills
