i sort of wanted to comment on how i see society as self-combusting in a way


Disintegrating


"Nil carborundum illegitimi"- anon.

"It became necessary to destroy the town to save it"- anon.

Quicksand reversed
Land spewing out constructions within
Layers upon layers
Rock-hard diamond basin

Weight bearing down, compression
of loose connections
Etchings in temporary media
Engraved resurrections

Deltas displacing silt in the fiord
Sides of four edges forming
Converging slowly
Coming to a point of forewarning

Weathering, somehow standing tall
'gainst elements supreme
Tombs within encasing kings
Silver cases idle gleam

Fissures crack, holes emerge
Limestone hanging by threads
Heritage battling the scourge
Life now balloons filled with lead

Crumbling before our eyes

Saga
Like a bunch of building blocks. We knock them down only to rebuild. Only to rebuild.

day to day, the rubble piles, and lives start to crack...

"ashes! ashes! we all fall down..."

we all fall down...

i loved this caila, some more "caila magic"

the world is dying before our eyes...

great!
