After: Ori Gersht Big Bang 2006: II


A subconscious awareness of a subtle horror
A Dutch master’s dark and light beauty
And suddenly noise and violence
Shattered glass blast
Glass grinding crunch
Shredded shards fall in slow-motion
Fatal beauty
Hidden power
Hungry explosive devours beauty and perfection
And leaves a single bud blown
By the back-draft of the moving air
bombed erased lives
Scattered fragments
Collateral damage
The troubles
9.11
7.7
Paris
Boston
Ground zero
The uneasy beauty of destruction
The finality of death
Latency of
Amazing grace
And instant irradiation.
