Scrapbook XVII

Darkness light
eternal fight
Ahriman asleep
OhrMazda weep
tears into life
grim quickly
luminescence bleed
blood and clay
fast fast
before he awakes
make man
it takes 3000 years
but not enough
creation comes in two sizes
metastasizes
destruction destroy
Ahriman crafts the
dark
come to life
for without that –
without that –
no thing would emerge
eternal battle
infernal
necessary
no other way
to escape.
To escape non-being
before being
watery solitude
with only darkness
for company:
sleeping, dormant, waiting obscurity
waiting to be called to action
by light’s creation.
Let the campaign impossible
begin.
Amen.
