  1. the last women
    on earth
    is taking a bath
    in Lake Anza

    In Tilden park
    she had gone
    for her usual morning
    horse back ride
    looking for survivors

    riding through the Cal Campus
    up through the hills
    over to Orinda
    and back

    so far
    three months
    after the Russian Bioplague
    had wiped out all
    of humanity

    she was it
    the last woman on earth
    and she was approaching

    if she did not meet
    a surviving male
    that would be it
    for the human race

    she finished her bath
    got back on the horse
    and rode into Berkeley

    to check her bulletin board
    posted outside of Peets coffee

    she went in
    that was her house

    checked the bulletin board
    checked the internet
    checked the radio
    no messages

    and poured herself
    a cup of coffee
    at least she would not
    run out of coffee

    as long as the power
    remained on
