The Day of our Valentines
by Jan Oscar Hansen
Bookmark and Share
  Valentine's day is when horrors begin at dawn on
the island town of Hashima abandoned now,
not a soul, only a black and white TV is on silently
re-running life as it was lived here before humanity
suddenly left. On a grey wall, a faded drawing of
a heart with an arrow through it, and words written
underneath: Happy Valentine's Day.
 
We know now, should humanity be eradicated by
a dervish wind of pestilence, what will be left are
decaying buildings, rotting books, and the eerie
silence of what we were not able to say.

 
(a small Island in the bay of Nagasaki)
