Sinkholes

"Disabled girl," he would probably call me if it were polite to notice someone's legs twitch uncontrollably.

Human activity creates sinkholes. The rock dissolves, spaces develop, and an entire world forms below the surface of these natural depressions. A massive one opened up near the capital of Guatemala a month ago. We blamed Tropical Storm Agatha, but I knew it was the collapse of society. We will slip through the cracks once it widens.
