Apocalypse by Mohamed Saad

Art by Yoshiro Tachibana


I came across a blog

this morning 

abandoned by its author

for the last four years,

I carried it with me

on my way to work,

tried to imagine 

the author now 

as had been described in

the last few entries

of the blog,

waiting for a metro

after office hours

to a nameless place.

I wonder how many 

more blogs exist

like this on the internet -

stranded buildings

in a post apocalyptic world,

and their poems

like wildflowers hanging 

down the windows

bloom under the ink

pressed inside my notebook.
