A Message for Whoever Comes Next

I.

The final
chapter’s
been written.

 

The book’s
come to
an end.

 

Printed &
bound
sealed in
bee’s wax.

 

Locked away
in a
coffee tin,
six tins
welded
together,
buried deep
in a glacier
that will
soon melt
into
the ocean.

 

All the
answers are
in the book,
all the
reasons why.

 

II.

More words
are tweeted
in a
single day
than exist
in all
the books
ever written,
but none
of them
will make
sense to
aliens
landing here
after
we’re gone.

 

Not until
they retrieve
the book
from the
dead sea
will they
know who
we really
were &
why we
are no
longer.

 

A message
of loneliness.
