Paul Schutze - The Sky Torn Apart

The sky tore apart and the sun curdled like a diseased eye.
Below, where once a continent of ice spanned the horizon,
there lay nothing but a vast expanding mirror, implacable and silent.
For days, clouds of flying creatures scoured it’s surface for purchase before falling exhausted into their own reflections.

This work is a reflection on the uncanny parralells found in our anthropogenic environmental transformation and the Nordic myths of Ragnarök in which the earth is subsumed by water as a consequence of divine conflict. In the myth, the world emerges from the waters reborn and purged.
