In the before time, dust was what you swept away and kept out of the house. Now it shelters us, hides us in the smoke and the grey ruins. It's already in us nohow, what's a little more hurt?

I would love to read this in the form of a fashion magazine or coffee-table book, with just this type of terse caption on each page. The interstitial chapters of The Stand and throwaway lines in Feed that give haunting fragmentary glimpses of civilization's collapse are my favorite parts.
