“Sometimes I Think If I Stand By the Phone It May Ring”
What do you do when the apocalypse interrupts your day off? Watch it happen online, what else.
Apocalypse is grandiose–sound and thunder and a Bruckheimerian shattering of worlds–but its impact is ultimately measured intimately. Human by human we cope with what befalls our loved ones and enemies and what we know will shortly befall us. Whether we watch the world crumble on 24-hour cable, or from pinned beneath its heel, we react as we do to any tribulation: with the fierce cyclic mechanism of remorse and blame that grows out of check like a cancerous cell.
In “Sometimes I Think If I Stand By the Phone It May Ring”, the only difference is that all bets are off, because this tribulation will not pass.
In this gripping story by Robert N. Lee, your relationship with others is the only thing left in your hand… the only thing within your power to crush.
