LEE PURSEWARDEN
After a Poem by Albert Caeiro
"At night I suddenly awake" & the glow of red numbers fills the room 12:21, its fearful symmetry seems forced until 12:34, a message fraught with terror. Outside, the neighborhood, the street, other apartments have shrunk to this room, to its crimson digits. There is no sound to the wind in the dry leaves traffic has disappeared, no emergencies are allowed. By then it is 1:11; what could be simpler more precise? until 1:23, then dreams of Pythagorus. I awake at 2:22, then doze off at 2:34 until startled at 3:33, awaiting 3:45 that "suffocates all existence on Earth & above…" I watch the red numbers reflect off the wall flipping & changing to 4:32, then 4:44 & finally sleep at 5:55, sensing the end when light erases the room's darkness the red digits fading, fading.

JIM DUNLAP
The Inexorability of Malthusian Geometry
Decrepit and emaciated, children cry -- The world is quickly running out of room. By the age of five, so many children die. Their tumid bellies, hungering, deny All emotion one bit happier than gloom. Decrepit and emaciated, children cry. Despair looks back from every tiny eye -- For most the future only holds a tomb. By the age of five, so many children die. Those pinched, mute faces wanly sigh -- As they shiver with presentiment of doom. Decrepit and emaciated, children cry. Shattered innocence can not imagine why The most security they've known was in the womb. By the age of five, so many children die. The 'Grim Reaper' cruelly wields his scythe -- On every side more terrors loom... Decrepit and emaciated, children cry. By the age of five, so many children die.
