MEANWHILE, THE SKY CLOUDED

 

products were bought
and sold
on Amazon

the housing market
collapsed
inwardly

a black hole
sort of thing
self-created

70% of college
students
graduating
in the U.S.

owed more money
for their education
than the average expense
of a new car

corgis
the faces of corgis
the perfectly shiny orbicular eyes
of corgis
became very popular

 


 

Chris Barton’s work has appeared in Entropy, Hobart, Word Riot, Potluck, and is forthcoming from Funhouse. He lives in Knoxville, TN.
