children

the end of the world
will come — and find us holding
hands in a circle

In the dream, we were adults, but otherwise the poem describes the dream pretty well literally. There was also an episode where I had a small child, a young boy, on my lap during a journey, with a lot of trust between us. That gave me the title. Yesterday I started reading a book by an American journalist named Mark Hertsgaard. The book is called ‘Hot’ and is trying to wake people up to the immediate and certain threat of some degree of climate catastrophe well within the lifetime of children being born now. I peeked at the last chapter, and it’s a letter to his five year old daughter.
