The Red Circle Hymn

It snowed black on Friday, Lily.
Just like you said it would.

Lily was gone before he woke up. And then it started. Red circles all around. The end of everything. Now all that’s left is a bottle of bourbon and a set of broken memories. The dominos are all lined up, waiting for that final push. The Red Circle Hymn is here. Everyone must take up verse and sing.

Bruno Masse, aka Raven, breaks new ground in this short tale of apocalyptic ‘noir’. A blend of anarchist ethos and nihilistic prose, overcast with stark depictions of crumbling urbania.
