Michele:The More Things Change

Fireworks exploded over the Brooklyn Bridge as 2056 approached.
They watched from lounge chairs on their balcony, sipping wine under heavy blankets.

“It’s funny how people thought the new millennium would usher in all these great changes. This probably isn’t what they imagined for the future.”
“I know, they thought we’d have flying cars by now, and automated houses.”
“And robots doing laundry.”
“Global warming!” She pulled the blanket tighter.

“Yea, it’s all so….the same.”
“Just some subtle changes.”
She laughed. “Yea, subtle.”

The clock struck midnight. They kissed and held tentacles as colors lit up the New NewYork sky.
