Blades of Wrath

Tuesday, May 11, 2010

In days gone by, blades cut only with the energy and strength of one
individual warrior.
Now, we have electricity to propel many blades for extended time.
Destructive power like that seems frightening.
The blades, all racked up together, even look like an uncut log, with
it's outer bark still attached.
This blade wood, is made of metal, and has already been sliced into
useful segments.
Patterned by it's different cutting teeth, it forms a design of
latent biting power at rest, in stasis, waiting.

Waiting for the 'juice' that will turn it on,
transform it into a destructive medium,
turning wholes into pieces, disparate, distinct
minuscule particles of dust,
freeing the wood fibre to float
airborne, detached.
