a continuing series of ever increasing oddities, part XXV

it had been so long
since anything had happened
everyone seemed to settle
under the unsettling eye
that watched them

no matter how strange
things get
humanity has an unerring way
of just going with it
it would seem

this wasn’t the end
of the end
of the world

no

this
was just a gentle lull
between
horrifying encounters

the tortoise
still thought about cabbages

the man on the moon
taught his courses

the girl
still hid in her blanket cocoon

it had just been quiet
for what felt like
weeks
