A light bulb hanging from the ceiling.
Enlights the concrete walls diffusely.
Echos of the sirens above, in the distance, like bitter screams of a bygone age.
Carved in the walls, little marks. As many as the days spent waiting, wandering, living locked up under the remains of our world.
We are the survivors, and it’s our lives that have been compressed underground to escape the surface. And we wake up every morning with a dry mouth and in our head, the hope that one day, we would recover what was once the territory of mankind.
