earth: dwell, 3

There is a thin and blurry line, it seems,
between protection and destruction;

the distinction between them
twisted in jargon and rhetoric,
each’s definition dependent upon which side
of what divide you stand on.

Kill or be killed
Take or be taken
Destroy or be destroyed

translates to

Kill first or be killed
Take first or be taken
Destroy first or be destroyed

and we go,
while ignoring truths:

that the killing will not stop if we do not,
that the taking will not stop if we do not,
that the destruction will not stop if we do not,

that these are cycles which
shall remain endless if the ending
does not start somewhere

Let us
begin.
