Last Man on Earth

The sky is bright blue and the sun is white, as if it were a summer day, but it's cold.  Everything is covered in snow.  There are huge drifts of it that cover houses.  I'm near a street sign; only the top of it sticks out of the snow.  It says "Peachtree".

-

There are no signs of life.  The only sound is the wind as it blows through the leaf-less tree tops; they make a sound like rattling bones.  Nothing is moving but the wind-blown snow.

-

The air is thin and bitterly cold.  It's difficult to breathe.  I turn my back to the wind and sit down next to the sign.  I close my eyes and think the last thoughts on Earth.
