Fin du monde – zeitgeist

“The world began without man, and it will end without him.”

 –       Claude Lévi-Strauss

“The world dies over and over again, but the skeleton always gets up and walks.”

–   Henry Miller

Fin du monde         

...

Pic du Bugarach – the upside down mountain

On the eve

Of the world’s

End

I sit

In my village

Reading poems of

Renewal,

Beauty, and

Tomorrows

A short drive away        IMG_4399

Bugarach

The final portal

 Des gendarmes

Des journalists

Paying a premium

To cover the

Spectacle

To witness

The end

Bugarach village

Bugarach village – Pic du Bugarach

Make a dash

For the final

Portal

Another world

To trash

And

Burn

Security is

High

Sensationalism

Sells

While I

Make plans for

L’printemps

***

Bisous,

Léa
