“Where have all the people gone?

The people are all gone now except where they wash ashore like branches or other spindly, broken detritus. Tumult ensues: floods from raging creeks and rivers or tsunamis from rising oceans after earthquakes; landscapes disturbed as water recedes. I fly overhead in my imaginary plane soaring in, too close to the jagged cliffs, as I come in for the views. Nothing stays the same on our land. Water changes everything.”
