Creation -- Fiction
Environmental holocaust has driven four people inside of a cave: an elder, holder of stories, a young man poised to assume primacy, a pregnant woman, a child. To escape the desperation of their waning food, water, and health, they tell stories about the past around a diminishing fire. Each character's story draws from a long oral tradition and describes the end of days as a collage of creation myths and historic artifact.
