Some say in two days the world will come to an end (a poem)

A huge change is coming. Life goes on…

Sirens modulate
smoke clouds rise
water floods the parking lot

I run into an old acquaintance
from ten years ago
both of us are fuzzy about the connection

The grocery store
was out of Diet Coke®
so I get Dr. Pepper® instead

Rain has been coming down
since this morning
