Athanasia's Interplay

Cover Image

I broke the world

for you, inverted the sky.

It was nothing.

It was everything.

I bent the rules,

defied logic, watched

whorls of woad grow

and shrink – wrinkle

with age and pull taut

with youth. I waited.

Millennia passed

with a flutter of lashes

and an echo of secret

laughter – syllables

cobbled together

into enough languages

to satisfy God after

the Tower of Babble.

I know them all.

And once again

you have forgotten.
