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

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