Encounter

Today the president shared a fake video of his opponent playing “Fuck the Police” from his telephone. This seems like a sentence that should be recorded for whoever finds the remains of our civilization.

I saw a deer today while jogging, and I’m trying hard to hang on to this innocent encounter. The deer didn’t seem alarmed by my presence in the slightest. It just watched me while munching some foliage. I felt an urge to lecture it, to tell it that it should be very afraid of humans because look at what we’ve done to the world. Instead I took its picture and carried on. Because that’s what we do these days.

Each night in 2020 I'm writing a short post for a series called Notes From the End of a World because I want to etch these days into my memory before I forget them. Before the world changes completely.
