Gloomscapes #12

So here it is, Number 12 in Gloomscapes series, which means now I have a dozen worth of posts, hopefully worth a bit more than a dime.

And it wouldn’t be it without some brutalistic architecture!

Ministry of Truth, his place of work, towered vast and white above the grimy landscape.

Gloomscapes #10

And here we are, it is the 10th entry in my Gloomscapes series! Can’t believe it’s been ten weeks already.

Did this used to be a family’s abode, or perhaps a school? Maybe a library, or a community centre. No one remembers, for there is no one left.

And the walls kept tumbling down
In the city that we love

Gloomscapes #9

Without further ado, here is Number Nine in the Gloomscapes series.

Today it’s abandoned shopping trolleys–or shopping carts if you prefer.

The clocks stopped at one seventeen. There was a long shear of bright light, then a series of low concussions. I think it’s October but I can’t be sure. I haven’t kept a calendar for years. Each day is more grey than the one before. It is cold and growing colder as the world slowly dies. No animals have survived, and all the crops are long gone. Someday all the trees in the world will fall. The roads are peopled by refugees towing carts, and gangs carrying weapons, looking for fuel and food.

And now, all that is left is empty shopping carts.
