Well, we burnt up our National fiction in the blazes of glory at the end of the story. Now it’s post-post-apocalyptic. Rewrites are pending. We can’t find an ending.

But all this talk about endings, it’s getting boring. We’ve been ignoring that eras we thought we long over are happening over, over and over.

Happening over, over and over again.

Tools used to measure our safety generate numbers. There’s safety in numbers. The sum of our National sadness indexed to inflation; a lost generation. And time marches steadily forward against our wishes; a campaign of inches. No, they won’t turn this into a movie. It’ll outlast our youth, it’ll outlast our beauty.

Sting in the tail of the story. We were all bitten, now the future’s unwritten. And it’s post-post-apocalyptic. Rewrites are pending. The future’s unending.
