the destructors @ 09:22 pm

i've been obsessed with the idea of creation lately...

it's common for kids to destroy things
like in Grame Greene's well known short story "the destructors"
to the rash of arsons and vandalisms that happen in any deralic town

Bisbee
empty houses get burned to the ground

these small coast town
sent back to nature
rocks through windows
fire to dry timber

Destruction.

we all want to create something
if not in an immortal way
"leave my mark on the world"
at least changing our environment
--graffiti
or interiour design

better than the comments some make
"oh, i just took a shit"
'great, production up 100%!'

as children
the easiest way to help creation along
is to prepare the way
prime the fertility of possibilty
by destroying what's blocking up the flow
the Old


taking a breath
stop
and wonder
when does the change happen
where we switch from one crew to the next?
