5th Element: Void

by Christos Polydorou

wrote Friedrich Nietzsche, the German philosopher who
died stark raving mad. He also announced the death of
God, which God took personally in a way that God had
never taken anything personally before, because it had
been written, and In the beginning there was the word.
For my sons and daughters to turn against me, thought
God, This is unbearable to me, stepping off the page, into
a new chapter, entitled Only If They Write Me, And Only
If I Get Back To Them. Stern,

impenetrable, and
shelled times,
but they can
be pierced.
