We are the plates crashing into each other after

the Earth decides to quake. Rewriting truths till new

ones begin to shape. The comfortable suffer and try to

hold on to what used to be, while the rest work together

to form new realities. No permanence here. Empires

built upon the ruble are made to disappear.

  8. An interesting reflection. The line that grabbed me was, “Empires built upon the ruble are made to disappear.”
