The Death of I:
Do you care?
Humm your thoughts out freckled in the skin of time.
Cold calculated displacement maps of all the blades of grass
that bent beneath the boots of war.
We were stunned deaf by short sighted reflections
of how death was so painless after you died
and the stainless steel structures of pride stubbornly crumbled
as lies bloomed into truth with the advent of objective time.
God forbid god surprises you.
And god forbid god wasn't quite the god you thought it was.
And that's just what you wanted, wasn't it?
Whoever said heaven was easy.
All of our claimed traits and discretionary perspectives
were split like sand from the largest boulder
to ever grace this galactic orgy
and the increasing density
the crack whore of gravity
has brought us back
kicking and screaming
to our inherent similarities
despite the disparity
between one and infinity
we will overcome
we will become one
will be gone
