On being left behind

on being left behind.

Piece description from the artist

a study of a modern day hiroshima.

as they stepped down into the shelter, they hurried to the shelf with the supplies. cobwebs had gathered, creating a pattern mimicking the jet planes flying overhead in zigzag formations.

"there is only one left. only one gas mask," she said.

it was known that even if you were in a shelter, a gas mask was required if you even wanted a slight chance of living.

"please, take it. i'll be fine," he said.
"i can't. i don't want you to die."

suddenly, her eyes glanced to the door above as the sounds of jet planes overheard stretched across the sky and the falling of bombs ricocheted off the buildings, the trees, and through their very bones. slowly, grabbing his hand, she began ascending the stairs.

"i'm not leaving you behind."
