"What if this was the last day--
cosmic event, meteor, black hole,
supernova or a Vogon bypass"
-- Grant Clauser, "Last"

"A friend of your neighbor's uncle
was incinerated in his armchair."
-- Kate Horowitz, "Spontaneous"

"It may be our heart of
hearts is a hole. How we fill it
ripples our circumference."
-- Kevin Spenst, "Deluge in Two"

"a voice whispers:
what is your utopia?
a Costco without people, consistent weather,
the abolishment of tooth decay."
-- Natasha Teymourian, "The Future is Destruction"

"That's where the smell comes from.
Green blades trying to embalm themselves.
Even trauma has a scent."
-- Otito Greg-Obi, "Lawn Mower"

"so i imagine an end. it goes like this:
blurred forest buffering. reef as
crumbling civilization or composite
plastic or screensaver sprouting
a low-battery warning."
-- Lucas Peel, "sunset_over_the_pacific.jpg"


Six tiny poems join forces in this fourth volume of small poems for the masses -- celebrating, fearing, reveling, considering, immersing themselves in the end of the world. How many poets does it take to survive the end of the world? In this volume, the answer is six; six separate, distinct, and unsettling perspectives on how the apocalypse will present and conduct itself, and soon.

This tiny book measures approximately 3" tall and 2.5" wide. It has six pages. Words by Grant Clauser, Kate Horowitz, Kevin Spenst, Natasha Teymourian, Otito Greg-Obi, and Lucas Peel; layout and design by Dessa Bayrock. Handmade with love in Ottawa, Ontario.
