Creation is a bloody process
“Civilized” people often forget
That the only reason we can even sit in our clean and sanitized halls
And Bragi can sing His songs and put pen to paper
Is because Odin carved up Ymir long ago
And crafted something beautiful
From the bloody ruin.
A world built from a corpse:
Mountains of bone, Seas of blood
Midgard was created from death.
The world revolves around the dance of life and death
And Creation can only come
Only after the brush is burnt away.
One-Eyed Odin, The Terrible,
Knew this well.
