Oil creeping out from a ship over a vast expanse of ocean of pubescent faces. Punctuated with island chains of volcanoes, scarred land from harsh maintenance. Pus volcanoes erupting hormones, hot magma dominating the land. Adults prepare fervently for the warnings of unpredictable and raging climates to no avail. Fierce weather takes hold of the adult earth, wrecking households and curfews. Preteens find themselves amid crashing waves, vehemently confused, yet confident they know all. Miniature adults, yet still fresh from childhood and brooding with ignorance and sarcasm. Babies, a newlyweds dream, twisting, morphing, and maturing into teenagers- a parents’ nightmare.
