Widespread destruction and collapse.

PERFORMANCE by Sigmund Vatvedt

The tangled thoughts I utter is a definite fondness for the obscure.
I find myself between fungus and the adobe. Intertwined and tangled
I caress my future. Feeling no fear but the awe of the encounter with
the echoes of an epoch.
