The Origins Story

And on the last day on earth there will be no one to question the living.

No one to guide.

The Bearer of own.

The smell of the soil with grains gritting in teeth.

cutting the lines: with the precise, confident movements my hand cuts through the hard paper. smooth surface of the blades against the grain of the grain of the paper…
