The Destroyer

by Nicholas John Street
silence is a solvent
that gently kills
all that is not "I"

and the world runs
from this most merciful
and gentle death

and in so doing

innumerable blind diversions
give birth to the stillborn multitude
till life itself becomes death

is it any wonder that mindless creation
is followed by mindless destruction?
