Day 65 – Blades of Wrath
Blades of Wrath

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.
