Withdrew from their everyday lives and sank into a detached existence.

... dogs, cats, and wild animals had also been poisoned.

A mysterious plant spore containing several chemicals may be the cause of the problems. Vitamin A deficiency contributes to blindness in nonruminants, such as cattle and swine, by making the cornea very dry and damaging the retina and cornea. The spores may contain carcinogens that can cause respiratory and immune system problems in both animals and humans. The young fronds of bracken are ingested as human food, especially in North America. They contain significant quantities of the carcinogen.

Mysterious Abduction Outside Brooklyn Brownstone

Dave Wilson
November 17, 2017
Downtown Brooklyn - NYPD and the Major Case Squad are investigating a bloody crime scene in connection with the mysterious abduction of 31 year old, Robert Backler.

At 12:15 AM EST, Saturday, November 15, police responded to a call from a DSNY employee on Union Street between Hoyt and Bond Street, located just over a block (Southeast) from the Gowanus Canal.

The Sanitation worker said he witnessed a "darkness" attack Backler as the service truck was making it's designated stops. As the worker rushed to the scene he was about twenty yards away when he saw the "lion shaped darkness" drag Backler quickly up the front wall of a three story brownstone.

Police found no signs of Backler on the roof, only a large amount of blood, as well as a pair of eye glasses. Backler was last to leave a dinner party he was attending at the building he was dragged to the top of. Police also found two cats in a nearby school lot, both covered in what appeared to be blood. Police said both cats were uninjured.

Backler is 6' 1", 178 lbs, caucasian, has brown eyes, and a shaved head. Backler has no distinguishing birthmarks or tattoos.

NYPD are continuing to investigate Backler's abduction, while the Major Case Squad investigates similar strange reports throughout the metropolitan area.

Powdered in neglect, many refused to acknowledge the building news of the vanishing. Drowned their heads in hops and grains. Buried themselves into alternate realities of maniacal egos. Inhaled any fume of detachment. Codependent on each others neglect. Only if they'd blinked... just for a slight blink...

End Wave. pg. 11. Dust.

Lucid particles of micrometers rose and settled across the island of Manhattan. They settled with the rise of the sun. They gusted as the moon glazed. Globally radiating in suburbia, in the cubicle farms, glowing in human cells, falling and floating follicles, weaves of cottons, silks, polyesters, wools, multi-flavored minerals, and countless breaths of terrain. Suffocating the air. And they breathed deeply. Into bends they inhaled.

Afternoon silence grew more silent as Fall grew colder. Reports of the vanishing continued. Reported: Suspicious Circumstances. Hundreds. Then thousands. In the thick of the cold. In the thick of the afternoon silence. In the thick of the suspicion. In the thick of the circumstance. Sparse afternoons were slowly turning to sparse nights. And still they waited and worked under the cloak of darkness.

Reports were filed. Reports were ignored. Buried. Trashed. Shredded. The way strange reports are. Reports of silver trains being derailed by steam geysers.

Green. Amber. Then Green. Then Amber. And the monotonous kaleidoscope rotated. In the xerosis crack of the AM murk the hum would hush. The tombs behind their homes would sleep again. But the sleep was not the same. The sleep was changing. The hum was changing. Everything was changing.

End Wave. pg 3: The Hum

Behind their homes. Beneath the movement of 3am. They hummed, while they hibernated. Hummed. Hummed. Hummed. Hummed the mission in binaural codes. Hummed the mission in organic nanobytes. Hummed the mission in humidity. Amongst the convoluted tones of beeps and blips they hissed and howled in dissident synchronization.

2017. The greater New York Metropolitan region. Maple melding to mortar on an early October afternoon in a quietly cobbled Brooklyn neighborhood. Apple crisp Fall air. The Sun burning a silent melanoma bite. Burning spots. Burning safety. Just burning. The cumulus hovering a hero’s cape over the gray and orange landscape. They scurried. They shuffled. They sat. They stood. They slumbered. Slumbered their slumber of their fall.

End Wave. pg 1. The End.

The last ripples bled into black. A black you used to see in the cornfields of Kansas.
And across the canal a silence rose above the end. A silence you used to hear in an Alaskan ICU waiting room.
It's all but vanishing vapor now. Humanity ended at this moment. Ended with these ripples.
