buildings fold and fall towers grown from mushroom clouds of
hydrogen mythic cites fill the skies hover ethereal above the sand shimmering mirages
of heat and dust motes swirl downward coat the rubble in grey snow
slow moving automatons flaming bright or ashen stagger
trees topple like rows of nine pins
corrosive rain abrades
