Time was when God judged Kings Sages Who judges now? -Friedrich Holderlin
Here’s my opinion if it means anything at all where are the great rivals building monuments to themselves and smashing them down? Opposing armies in raiding parties Have they all lost their nerve? The steady decline of expectation this just in… Stars are falling from the sky that remind us where we are we can’t see them, though we feel their absence as an enclosed space with no holes cut for air growing closer light narrowed to a point, while, on the other side growing wider. A salient’s thrust into another’s territory, borders in the shape of a wound severed stems taking root in foreign countries stirring out of the ancestor soil. The damage repaired in time for the next one to begin, the places are real, but the names have been changed corrupted upon coming into contact with our own time existing as much now as they did then. Explosion out of the archaic torso, the thunder of its destruction still felt in the source of the stone; a prepared core cracked along already established faults. A billion years in the making another billion to dissolve. The head no longer belongs to the body the body no longer belongs to the world but what world? There was a time when we might have seen it coming but now every experience seems unique so instead of creating our own gods we have resurrected old ones that don’t die, but go on in unimaginable ways.
