Issue 10 of Overcom, a literary journal featuring work by queer writers and artists.
This queer literary journal gives a glimpse of the end of the world as we know it. While observing the apocalypse we saw some things you might expect: a sun-rotten halo, the sky like a steel door, and a concert of falling stone. But as the nuclear heat hits, things get anarchic… imagine Year 13 pranks, listening to 2000’s emo in a woolshed, pouring Waikato Draught over the hood of a Porsche, eating cigarette butts out of a soggy CBD gutter, and hallucinating that your mouth is a torch. Doomsday is here, and it feels like the last time you felt good crying; like your DNA unwinding; like eating a recreation of your childhood dinner and realising it's not the same way your mum made it. It’s a bedtime story that induces a nightmare. It’s the technicolour act of forgetting. But don’t worry; there is something sweet about watching the sky fall. So, hold your loved ones close and watch it all decay. You never know– you may ascend into another realm.
