Of Creation

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

After Destruction.


Only after the brush is burnt away.

One-Eyed Odin, The Terrible,

Knew this well.
