The Story of You and the End of the World

It’s always been waiting.

Suppose you went to the retreats, subscribed to the magazines, attended the talks, and knew all the songs. Suppose it was never strange to you, because creatures are obliged to take on the shape and size of their surroundings. Suppose you could quote the warnings from memory. The warnings weren’t as fun as the songs, but they were necessary, because the world was dangerous and there were so many ways to fall.

  • All your stuffed animals potentially being destroyed in a fire.
  • The microscopic bugs that lived in your eyelashes.
  • The end of the world.
