No Apocalypse for Me

Aug 2022

Melbourne, Australia - No Apocalypse for Me (2022) is a poetry collection on survival in the post-apocalyptic pandemic times. A continuation to the book At the Altar of the Lord Virus (2021). Written in Melbourne, the city with the world's longest lockdown, it explores dark corners of the soul confronting confinement and attempts to transcend and release by aids of an abstract mind and capability to love.

Excerpt from the book:


Revelation 23:1

Barren are the mothers
And slain the fathers of my hour

The sun erupts in sudden bursts
This is when the seasons turn over

Walking around Mobius way I ponder
Shattered beginnings, demolished ends of my hour
