LAST DAYS ON PLANET EARTH - FICTION

Creep, creep, slowly we creep, wanderers in the desert, creeping along slowly as we try to find a place to sleep. Which way is up?

I continued onward, my last friend baking as a rotting corpse someplace past what once was Las Vegas, now just a memory of broken dreams and dust.
