carry that barque above your head.

You are Nun,
and we were told.
Carry
the barque above your head,
and percolate from land to water.

I watched you destruct,
to reconstruct and create.
A world so complex it takes worlds,
lifetimes, deities to liberate.

The clouds are smoked
with ambiguity,
knowing that the ambivalence of Nun
is still.

I watched you create
all that you have ever known.
A creat
ion that wants to deviate
but got stuck in a fate that you think you must carry.

Carry that barque above your head
to the edges of your universe,
wait until you allo
w yourself
to reach past to another universe.

Chaos gets scared,
Nun shuts down.
