A column aged and lifeless, technological memorial to genocide and death. Memorial of a most primitive – but not wholly dead generation….

encased in diamond shells

shot and spinning – grows life!

Among even darkness,
and frozen possibility.

Venture forth, dare we?

Into the growing darkness –
growing stronger daily…
