White Noise

Every station

ran the same thing

over and over

"This is not a test!"

All but one.

 

A Christian station

Sermons interspersed with donation calls

twenty four hours a day.

 

An atheist, she still listened

if only to hear a human voice

express an emotion

other than fear.

 

Still, looking out at the undead

shambling masses that filled the street

she had to chuckle when the preacher

offered eternal life

as some sort of reward.
