It's the prologuePrologue
You're reading this, which was, or will be, written 500 years from now. I promise you this is a true story, though unbelievable as it may seem.
Let me start by telling you how Earth has changed. An asteroid struck the Polar Regions North of what was once Alaska, righting the Earth's axis by ten degrees. That in turn caused much of the ice caps to melt and changed climatic patterns worldwide. Much of the world was over. Europe and Asia became covered in several linked seas. Any of the buildings in New York City that were under 105 stories were completely covered in water.

over the shade,
breathes a new glow over snuffed candles.

how a breath couldn't cease to be breath
in the midst of prayer.
