There is no silence!

There is no solidity,
No solace!

…this world comes in waves
.in echoes

This world mills our bones to dust.

We leave ourselves
Our gods entombed
In broken stones
In lives
Dissolving memory
Dissolving time

In time

Our gods became electric
We shot them through space

We drank
And drowned
In our lust
For ascendance…

To memory…

Unveiling the mysteries
Of carbon and water.

"We drank
And drowned
In our lust
For ascendance"

we sure did. endarkening as opposed to enlightening. this be a tale of humankind’s mismanaged ecological mastery, or our failed attempts to come to terms with more esoteric and occult knowledge/ aspects of existence…

man has always situated himself in the centre and plotted himself on an upward sloping curve… and there in lies his problem… we get so bogged down in "humanity" that we forget "life-force" and "essence"... ah well...

I probably didn't "get" this, but I always appreciate the mental vistas your poetry opens up. thank you.

-reverberates through each path this poem takes me down... Very nicely done food for thought.

I'm impressed. Thanks.
