Inevitable is the meeting with me I shout to the Flesh : Youre alive! Lash the pain with the scourges of fire Like a beast, who is growing up Madness My name is Droma The Sleepless I know only one thing: Theres no end for the Pain Even after Inferno Theres no instant for rest Without suffering Tell me you, Nim, The grief-creatorhow Will the heart think of your Sorrow If its stabbed by a dagger - Droma, king of Pain Do you know Which one is more painful- Knife-wound on your back Or the feeling of being betrayed Which one is the real Pain Do you know? 6. Unrivalled you are, my lords Your diunity bears fight Your heads frightfully dance On their monstrous necks Rooted in the Abyss Stop for a while with your squabble I saw the Last man To wait for you Deserted As the flock of his laugh Which shoves between the walls Of the canyons Deserted As the step of the Evening On the Earth turned into grave I saw the Last man And his eyes: There was no fear And remorse in them Because he destroyed all of his kind To dare Gods But when Humans died And Gods died with them And the last words of the Last man were: Im the upraise and the setting of this world Then he was waiting for a long time For something to happen He forgot time and his old nature Torn away from all the Dimensions And somehow he imperceptibly Turned to Irrelevant 7. -He will mourn- said Nim All Universe is made by tears He will mourn -He will suffer- shouted Droma Pain is the master of all And Im the master of Pain Irrelevant Will be the last battle field Of our immortal hostility And like a shot in the sun Will be his revolt Now he is expecting us Unshakable And Life Is the whole power that he is possessing Life Which soon will not belong to him IRRELEVANT II THE CASTLE Space is wide open Black wound above me Im building the walls of my castle Immuring the bodies Of dead meteors Reached with their last fire To my Earth Im feeling tremors Forewarning me That armies are drawing to my kingdom O-oh, formerly I thereby exterminated All humans and took up their lives Who is coming now to present me with Something that I dont need 2. Im seeing no flags Im hearing no horns Only the agony of earth And convulsions of the air Someone stole into me As the wind in the towers of my castle Torches are dancing before my eyes My body is bonfire of sins And the flames are throwing shadow More enormous than the Night Shadow that I knew once And my race had fear of it - I am Droma Came To bring you pain 3. That was very long time ago Then I was not the one that I am now My flesh was fragile And vulnerable for you And my strength was breaking up And I was falling On the one of your twisted steps But its already gone- The sense to disobey you Now I have that gift to take Everything from everyone Im the Irrelevant And all ways finish in me Like fallen stars I build from them My dead castles Look how Im dancing Like a salamander In your fire Look how your stings are sinking into my flesh And with their pain They are becoming part of me Dont tryNo! Stop! You are mine to Even if I dont want you 4. Someone else is jostling In the emptiness inside me Like the echo of a dying wail Is that you, Nim? What are you searching for? My heart? Or the way to escape You are doomed I felt youI let you in Until Droma was expiring To seek for my memories Like unburned letters In the ash of a hearth Smoldered away a long time ago Did you find anything, Nim Did you find anything dear To infect it with sorrow Do you thing That this will save you? I smashed the tears with hammers I remember how I killed my mother first I remember how my children were still sleeping When The Dead entered to him With me I remember the sins of all mankind Because I forced everyone of them To confess me before I kill him I rememberbut It doesnt interest me The people gone And the world became somehow flat The sun is a golden spider Smeared on its wall Can you hear me, Nim Now from both of us Only you are sad Nim You are only remembrance now 5 My castle still stands unfinished I only have to rise up my eyes to heaven And some of the stars are killing themselves Im laying their bodies One on the top of the other Masoning (I dont know why Im doing this May be its a habit Left over my before) Im the Irrelevant The Creation ends in me And the castles that I try to construct I swallow after I build them IRRELEVANT III GEOMETRY OF CHAOS 1. In the memory of Space Dreams are locked Remembrances of the worlds Which have not exist for long time Nightmares about creatures Travelling tour the galaxies On the corpses of extinct stars Creatures-annihilators Torn from all the dimensions Evolvements Engulfed their evolutions Sarcomas in the organism of Universe They are wandering One to another Coming nearer and at the same time They are not stirring Space is moving and sinking in them The only thing they have Is the Thirst- that disastrous gravity Dragged and themselves To Nothing 2. They didnt know Who was the first of them No ne of the Irrelevants expected Someone else to be there That would be frightfully And they had no fear But the stars dropped away And the comets in their fire rush Brought news about the horror of something Inescapable Before the Inescapable to swallow them 3. The Irrelevant from system Radula Stopped the flow of time and stared At the pulsar, who twinkled anxiously Like open heart above him A heart of blew lightnings Thinking star- He was derived from similar one A neutron brain Who kept a heap of pitiable planets alive That was before the implosion Now they were all inside him They did not exist Existed he only The Irrelevant was looking at the star Her impulses reached him- One language he wouldnt forget Like he wouldnt forget his origin But that was no consideration After a split the pulsar should be vanished In him A split or more As much as he allowed Butthere is something in this star He stopped her, not to see her fear There was something that she knew About him andabout someone else Something that made the Irrelevant From the dead system Radula To feel strange 4. -Where is your twin-he asked -Dead-said the star -When did he meet me- his voice didnt change -It was not youother like you He stopped her pulse for a while As if he played Then his neutron laugh Illuminated the cold galaxy -Im the Zero in the co-ordinates all the dimensions end in me Chaos is my inferior And Im the inferior of Chaos Someone else like me? It makes no sense But is there any sense in the Chaos indeed - He calls himself Irrelevant He is the last of some kind of biological race Now he is destroying everything I dont know why he spared me The star became silent - He didnt spare you He sent you to tell me that he is coming 5. Irrelevant- he thought After the star vanished in him I must ask him, what does it mean Before I kill him IRRELEVANT IV THE VOICE 1. The name of Darkness Yesterday it was Shadow Cold and Mowing Death Today it is my name Soon it will be remembered Only by me for I wont leave Anyone else At the end I shall swallow myself All Universe Will perish in me Im a grave from which No one revives Crater in which Nothing raves Draw-well drinking blood Of the souls Your look reaches To my chambers Future ends in the Abyss In which I dropped first I, Irrelevant The Human Abyss 2. It still has sense for you to return Create again what have been undone Dont efface those Who will come after It still has sense for you To live 3. It wasnt just a wave of sound But voice, voice that woke up The dead He surveyed the spaces Like an ominous lighthouse Called back his illumination He found no one May be he had heard The resonance of the galaxies But there were no more galaxies All the dimensions were sterile And only that Voice came from somewhere Concealing in his own In the Irrelevant Who was left alone with nothing 4. Mercy is your only way to me You must create to reach me 5. Where are you? I walk through all parallel Universes I find only your traces In the obliterated spaces You are not there Your Voice is close But who is sending it? Who! Silence on all the dimensions And words are emersing in me From the Abyss Dont look for me on place Where you have power Im not dimension, I m a state Im catching you, but You cant catch up with me Because Im in there- in the Temple In which no one from your kind Will permeate Im the One, immovable Eternal Irrelevant condemned to Chaos And you are the insanity of loneliness Calling me for self-destruction Look at the spacehe is getting more and more small and your meetings with the others are close But you dont realize As they too That you are the evening outside A shadow hunter Those, who doesnt sleep Are in my Temple 6. Voice disappeared As he has been come But resound elusive Irrelevant Felt momentarily Some kind of helplessness Momentarily He became the last man again IRRELEVANT V GODACAM The Nebula looked like A phantasmal ship In a dark and immovable water Like a smile Hiding a tooth with poison in it The Irrelevant came near slowly With his planet And the satellite Flying round them Like a head searching for body The Nebula condensed before him And her whiteness darkened as if A shadow past somewhere behind her 2. Far away, far away was the Darkness Only Darkness without stars White steams Were rising like until recently There had been a balefire And all the worlds had turned into ashes There died out the galaxy Grimmia Korzinia with her shining rings And the emerald sunrise above Aion There died the whitestaress Lejonia And the miserable mother of the one Who killed first his brother On his own, and then her after that- System Radula 3. Dead Nebula LipsVessel Dead Nebula Show me your heart! White dream Berthed in the black bays Who is hiding behind you Like blood under the flesh Like a down of prey Stalking the cloudy drove? Im a star rider Star dinacore I came near to your black spaces And saw empty orbits And torn parsecs of time I said to myself: You are here- The same as I am Your way ends in my way Show me your heart! 3. The ship slowly went down The lips turned to a groan The Nebula vanished And behind her rose One monstrous Black-shining Supernovae 4. The Irrelevant stood before him Stepped on his Earth With the wrathful satellite Frozen over his shoulder -I late for you- Spoke the dark star- I let you to exist. And he peered Into the emptiness behind him The Irrelevant smiled: -My mother said that Dying stars fulfilled Impossible wishes Now your doom is my wish And my wish is: Your doom He felt his look A part of his planet torn off And lost in his dark throat -Ive met many like you Said the Supernovae They fly between the stars Cautiously Locked in their coffins Cadavers Space is not your home Space doesnt need you And I dont need anybody I was a star feeding the rest of all stars With my light Now Im a hole, cleft And the Darkness reign in me One by one I take in The constellations on which The destiny is written No one is more powerful Than those who is finishing His life by his own After he has put the end Of everything else To create means- to escape From the End To be afraid of the Emptiness I have no fear Thats why I destroy I called myself Godacam- Black sun You, standing in front of me Your name carries no power You are own weak and pitiful In your journey to the self-humiliation Look at yourself Youve kept the planet that born you Youve kept her moon Running round mindlessly There is sentiment in you -No sentiment That is no moon That is the Sun of my system I sent him to a new orbit I, the commander of the stars He will be a slave To my gravitation And you, star, you will be its victim IRRELEVANT VI THE KISS 1. The light disintegrated first And every color of it briefly rose As a day smiling to Death The Star was a black mirror The mans face- a kaleidoscope Of shadows tearing up the rays One by one the rays went down And their last embrace was for those Who had no mercy to them 2. The Last Man kissed the Sun 3. There Where the time And the density of the dimensions end There Where the photon blood Pushed out From the pulse of quasars Doesnt reach out There is the Temple Without doors With Someone waiting inside it For one rebirth To let him free The few ones who have taken The road of Death Can hear his words Telling about the Salvation But how to stop the blood Which flows out from the veins Of those who love the Dawn When the Evening lives in you Youve found a single friend Only in yourself Your last shot is for him You first destroy Everyone Like you- Everyone You first destroy Everyone DestroyEveryone Destroy Farewell, Black Sun! 4. I dont understand The impulses of Star were confused While his strength was leaving him He is only a worm on a fruit bitten off Im the tree, which he torn from Everything died in my shadow And nowI feelThe Emptiness Is calling my nameGodacam He was decomposing On the snapping skull Of the planet Irrelevant was building a black citadel From his flesh -Tell me- he asked coldly When he reached The living brain of the Star,- Have you ever been visited By a foreign thought Has an unknown Voice called you Till youve been coming to your End Tell me, and youll meet him quickly -I am Nobody called by Nothing Faltered the sinking sun -And the Voicedid you hear it? Speak! Did you hear it inside you? The impulses were fading away -Inside meis only the thing I left behind The thingthat you have on too There is no other voiceexcept Your own cryin the Night Heard by No one 5. Look what came of it The Irrelevant talked to himself And watched the black Castle Nobody lives here anymore IRRELEVANT VII Vespremorta. The seeing of Rati 1. This story comes from forgotten times When on the Earth Only the Goodness had been born Nobody made war There were no quarrels The sickness and nightmares Didnt exist The Death came as a rest and dream The people called for her by their own When they felt that their spirit Had drafted from all the springs of Creation And had slaked in them his deep thirst For beauty 2. At that time The goddess of Spring- Rati Reigned over the world Life didnt know the old age The days were songs And the nights were music The happiness lived in everyone- Clean and accessible as the air 3. One night a monstrous black hand Appeared in the sky And dragged the constellations Like necklace of pearls torn away by force Lovely stars- life giving suns And rational planets The Hand took them all Greedily in its blackness The Earth was doomed People didnt know the war There was only one weapon In the world: Vespremorta, the Darknesskiller The ancient sword forged By the god of Winter- Ratis father- Adrifis There was a writing On the one side of its blade Resurrect the Death to destroy her The writing continued on the back side: One is the blood of Darkness and Light 4. It was like a vernal frost The heart of Raty filled with pity She wished to save her land And the life of her subjects The goddess left Her wreath of anemones To a white stone And set out with unbraided hair And garment made by radiance Up to the marble stairs Leading away above the clouds There stood the Castle of the sleepers And the fathers sword Vespremorta Expected her in there. The creatures from the whole peaceful world Came to kiss her good bye And their grief was boundless From the seaside vales Like surfs whisper Nereids raced On their blue-eyed horses Flower-bearing dryads and nymphs Descended from the woods To see off their goddess With the men Rati vanished in the clouds That night it began to rain heavily And Lightings danced in the sky The goddess fought with the Darkness People saw from below How his black hand engulfed The Castle of sleepers With the morning of a new day All creatures of the Earth Smiled trough their tears to the sunrise The sun was alive! They were alive The HandThe Shadow was gone in the sky But Raty didnt come back 5. After that night Darkness settled in the people And the Earth became the kingdom of Death Death already ruled over the seasons Happiness became the absence of unhappiness Tempting and exciting seemed Every thought of destruction 6. Like most of the fairy-tales This one also finishes with hope Some day Raty will return With her unbreakable sword The Spring Victor of the space Darkness May be will drive away The darkness in our hearts IRRELEVANT VIII DR. VANT 1. When she came back after an hour She saw the pleat from her hand on his sheet The body hadnt moved The woman thought with sadness If I only could see his eyes I should know where his is now But the bandages were hiding them The bandages were hiding the Darkness 2. There was writing on the visiting card With knight letters, it says: Dr Vant Architect-restorer, Collector of antiques -Excellently she tought A buyer for my find He said: Come and see my place I invite you to have lunch with me and my family Bring also your friend Vespremort (He smiled nicely here) His story excited me much Family- he felt sad Fascinating man, butforget! Only business 3. My place was a castle A long white alley Rows of elms With fallen fruits And an iron portal Forged by stars Neogothic- she assessed It seemed like towers were fixed in the sky Flags with stars on them Little coloured windows Decorated with angels And stars again- like childrens beam It was spacious and clean inside Frenzied suns and constellations Were running on the walls The roof was mooving Underneath there was a giant optical eye It was opening gently at night Like an eye of a sleep-walker Isllands were looking at here from the floor Continents and blue oceans She was walking on them, Crossing mountains and deserts and easy She encroached upon someones kingdom Or a ravishing country Dr. Vant captivated his guest In his chamber of stars Oh, its magical!- She exclaimed quietly like a fairy-tale- seems Im stepping on the whole world and you bult this all by yourself He answered with a smile -I like to watch the stars And he took her in the Telescope tower To wade together In the Milky Way 4. He introduced her when they sit down to the table -Kids, meet miss Guendolin (Marta and Tim were sweet) -And this is mrs. Vant- Their grandmother, and mother to me She tought something for a while It seemed he guessed that My wife passed away not long ago Little Tim shyly came forward -Dad says that she is the sun now And every day she will rise for us Miss Guendolin smiled And caressed a childs face Both- she and mr. Vant looked at each other 5. The liquid in the catheters seemed to be frozen A dissolute green comet crossed the monitor Then- another one and after an even moment- another one A jay alighted infront of the window Her claws scrabbled on the sheet-ironed sill The young woman took her eyes off the body And looked at it as if she expected news At this moment somewhere in the space One more star had been vanished 6. -She brought a weapon in our home,- Mrs Vant was worried, -This sword -Mother, these are superstitions I love her The kids got used with her and they are calm -But not me Irei, a have bad feeling about this -Dont think of it- Said he cheerfully and smiled -It is time for us to be happy again IRRELEVANT IX ECLIPSE That morning He took Guendolin To a medical examination in the town (they expected good news) He left her and went to meet with a friend His friend didt come He came home earlier And found A trace of blood on a white alley The broken portalits barses squeezed their stars like Convulsed fingers Invaders! The guards were deaddead knights Scattered armour all over the court Murderers scarlet grassMURDERERS! The castle was silent Two dark jeeps were waiting infront of the stairs Like two slleping beasts They were still here The horror went him mad He rushed into his home, without a weapon- One desperate demon, storming a cathedral He found his mother still living Drowning in her own blood The constellations on the walls twirled And stoped in her eyes The kids! Her eyes were telling him Save them! They are upstairssleeping gently NO The tought came off like a bloody drop And fall With a hard chord MY KIDS ARE ALREADY DEAD Mr. Vant, welcome to the Timelessness The time doesnt exist for those Who have noone to wait - Just a moment- he uttered distantly Theres one more thing I have to do And after that Ill return here forever 2. Everything seemed to heppen Somewhere else He was locked in a cabin With buttons and levers And was operating himself Far, far from there His eyes was observing the whole castle Like cameras He was seeing trough the walls, in every room The nursery- two soaked from blood little beds His study- silhouettes was littering his books Wresting pictures from their frames Dumping, craming in one place Relics from different epochs Every room silhouettes everywhere In the Telescope tower Someone was gigling- A freak exiled beyond its walls He saw again his mothers eyes What else are you looking for cravens Youve already taken my dearest thing 3. The levers in the cabin were mooving He went to the stand with the swords Drew out Vespremorta And start moving like a man in trance Across the amphilad of halls The silhouettes were turning up from everywhere They were shooting at him and hit him But he wasnt falling down, didnt stop He was reaching everyone And was slaying him The oceans beneath him overflew From the weight of dead bodies And the whole Earth became red Now he was the monster in the castle 4. The cops came late His sword was waiting for them too He knocked out four men The rest of them were shooting And shooting He staggered and fall over As if he had taken the weight Of the whole lead penetrate into his body The levers didnt work anymore The cabin was empty 5. -Name?- asked the doctor of duty -Guendolin Hieman -Name of the patient, whom you want to visit -Vant-said the woman, - Irei le Vant THE IRRELEVANT X NAMELESS SHADOW 1. -The Chaos has Consciousness- the Voice was speaking But He doesnt want flesh The Matter disunite the Consciousness She subjects him Makes him recreates her Because her life is short And She understand that trough the Consciousness But no one can convince the Consciousness That He is eternal No one, except the Chaos - The Consciousness is afraid of the Chaos said the Irrelevant -The Matter is afraid of the Chaos- The Voice corrected him Those Consciousnesses Which were in symbiosis with Her And had been forgotten their entirety, Their origin They are afraid But the pure Consciousnesses Are not afraid of the Chaos Because they are the Chaos -Why the Chaos had created the Mattery asked the Irrelevant and shivered with the answer -To reach the only place he doesnt rule- My Temple 2. -6161 bullets The doctor was reiterating nervously As if he wanted to suggest himself That it was truth,- That is impossible Even for Shinobi Guendolin was staring at him with bewilderment You know, -he began to explain foolishly- Me and my son, play on a computer game at home His character has countless of lives and its easy -Dictor, please, is he alive!? He was startled by her painful voice Sorry, miss,yes, he is alive His was in hopless condition The operation was hell But his organism bore up -May I see him?,- She interrupted him with a pleading look She couldt control her voice and tears -You may stay here with him- the doctor replied with sympathy,- I shall ask the security to leave you in private But Im afraid that he is still in coma -Comatill now?-her tears frozed - ?- Whole of her body benumbed by cold, -But four days have past!? The doctor noded thoughtfully: Something very strange happened After the operation he regained consciousness at once He wrested his systems and pulled The intubator out of his throat The he started to laugh loudly And to groan We thought that it came from the pain Or it was due to a terrible remembrance Which had been unexpectedly ressurected I gave him some sedatives- Dromalgon- to stop the pain And Nimazin- to chase the nightmares Then he suddenly lose consciousness We pluged in the systems again We expected him to recover A few hours late The apparatuses was showing Normal functions of his brain and heart But he wasnt there It seemed there was noone in his body 3. Everything was white in the room The darkness swarming from the monitor Was getting closer to her eyes Closer Miss Hieman, your friend has fallen into deep coma Unfortunately Noone of us has not idea Closer The impulses of Consciousness- Green zigzaging comets Faded away The darkness blanked her She felt herself at once Meshed in it like in a cobweb Comets were writhing in that cobweb Stars were interlaced in it Plantes were spinning on its threads They were thousands Suddenly they all faded The Darkness was vibrating As if Someone attracted Her With invisible fingers And She might break apart every moment It was appearing A Nameless shadow THE IRRELEVANT XI BEFORE THE SUNSET 1. - The Temple?- he couldnt hide it- The Desire The Voice understood - Your interest is sinister too Because your Consciousness is subordinate To the Chaos He created the Matter once To overcome his own Spirit The Spirit is a a form of consciousness, A degree of consciousness The Spirit of Chaos is mighty But it is also poor The word selflessness Was incomprehensible to him But this word is the only key to me When the Matter was created The Chaos tore his own consciousness His spirit haunted every bit of flesh I haunted there too. But I was silent But in whole of this diversity Of Mattersomething happened Someones consciousness found out The Love, found out The Valour and Self-sacrifice They started to come One by one- the poor spirits Which were different now The idea of the Chaos came true But not entirely Thousands of Consciousness, parts of His own Liberated themselves and reached The Salvation of the Temple And they became a part of the most supremed state- The Harmony The Irrelevant was listening And was feeling the fight Between the rage and the reverence Inside of him The voice continued implacably -more of these spirits wasnt ready The Self-seeking was living in their Consciousness They were connected with the Flesh and The Chaos Stronger than The Harmony The Rebirth was for them- A sort of another more chance The Chaos understood He understood that He will never penetrate In the Temple Not in the state that he was He also understood that he was loosing himself Then he created the Warriors The Warriors of Darkness To exterminate the Matter And to bring Him his poor authority First that was mine and I created it That was my power to destroy Last that was mine, and I destroied it That was my ability to create The Irrelevant remembered The ancient Code -Who are these Warriors?-he asked Even he was feeling the answer They are from different races But in all of them lives the primary Chaos The Space decreases continuously And the meetings between them are inevitable- Meetings of predators The more powerful one engulfes the weaker They were 3 not long ago But you destroyed Godacam The Irrelevant send away his sun to a setting -Who is the last one?- he calmly asked While he was watching how his own shadow was prolonging -Onosma Graba- The Voice sounded like a heavy sigh,- The Hand of Darkness. THE IRRELEVANT XII THE DOOR 1. Grieving Castle Alley without sun Leaves unsweped Dreaming castle In bell without chime Are breaking our winds Your stars are distant And the tears of the towers are dripping In them unscented I roam embrace sword Fight with the naked autumns biting My lonely heart Everything is dead everywhere These halls are cold now Without your hands And the castle is seems made of ice Theres noone who may build fire back in my veins Where are you my love I woke up and want To return in my dream back again Empty addresses Mute door-bells I pushed today With hands of lead I woke alone You didnt make it and stay There with your world You are drifting in darkness eternal More far away from the Temple More close to the vacant Hell Listen two hearts now are beating Under my flesh and a new life Is growinig in me Your eyes are hiding in darkness. The powerless time Has stopped its run I remember that moment- I was standing At that Door like Im facing it now There was a locked room I asked you with fear You replied me with grief That the end is inthere If somebody opens once That Door It closes second time never It calls the star rain And death Lives in its room forever Those who had chosen To desecrate your home Broke down all doors They understand it first Then everyone had gone Cause You were that Door How can I return you from there You are fallen in coma Kind prisoner My dream is already lone Im disolute, homeless Irrelevant 2. On the Earth the thought is chasing the Space In the Space the thought is looking for the Earth He was standing in silence On his piece of planet He wasnt killing stars anymore He was watching beyond them The thought The only one who was waiting for me is to kill me And the Voice understood him and left him for a long time alone. But he called Him -Did you appear to anyone else of the Warriors -Only you could here me- said the Voice -Why was that ?- asked the Irrelevant -Because of the humanity in you 3. The stars there were lot, but immovable He was traveling among them like Haron In the Kingdom of the sleepers The black waters were drowning him with their dead streams And the man wasnt resisting As if he wanted to reach sooner The place of the Last Meeting Two giant moons slowly drew aside from his way Suddenly an astounding view opened out in front of his eyes IRRELEVANT XIII THE COLLECTOR 1. The harbour of Doomed He remembered a story A story about the black quay Where the ships stoped For the last time Beautiful schunes, proud caravels And brigantines light as a breeze They came to that place To sink forever Laded with their treasures Survived squalls and battles They gently went down At the end And in this last voyage Their captains and companies Didnt leave They sinked with their ships Formerly he couldnt understand What attracted them to that way To the black quay To the Harbour He couldnt understand Why they stood And now he was both- Black harbour, which attracted the Doomed ones And a doomed man, walking to the inevitability 2. Now the ships were planets Armadas of stars with fairy sails They were shining one by other Lightly touching themselves with their flames They all were staring the darkness And the darkness was freneticly cradling them Drinking their lights, gravitations Leaving them a bit of life To flicker without hope A giant harbour for a countless doomed And in its centre was the Madness 3. The Chaos thought I dont want to be an eye- only to watch I dont want to be a mouth Only to speak I want to be a hand Only to take He created Onosma And infuse his own Consciousness in him He left the Darkness for his flesh And the hand for a shape In such a way With fantasmic fingers Onosma began To unknit the Universe And as many galaxies he destroied As much he realized the ugliness of his perfection The Insanity settled in him She made him The extravagant sadist Of the Universum She transformed him Into the Collector 4. Onosma knew That he was the hand Which put a fullstop After each sentence The last hand in the last deal The end of the game without players Thats why he made a decision For a slow regaly fair Death He selected the magnificent creatures of Space Like a vanityman who searches Only the rearest and splendid jewels He swallowed the junks with a light hend He wanted to left at the end Only He and his collection Of jewelry Then Onosma, the Hand of Darkness Adorned himself with them All of bracelets from asteroids And rings from shining moons And not polished suns Should execute the mission That He carried in his mutilated From the sickness Consciousness His hand should put the last point After the phrase esthetics of the self-destruction 5. The road to the Last of the Warriors Was blocked From lethargicly swimming bodies The Irrelevant wrathfully scattered them Like billiards balls in the Space And appeared before the dark Hand Like a mythical mortal who stands Before the God of Doom Carried the sin enormous as a planet But looking not for his Redemption Or Retribution He only looked for Death IRRELEVANT XIV THE HAND OF DARKNESS 1. Onosma was nothing but A horrified contrast Between the Darkness and the Chaos As if someones palm had wrested a piece of flesh from the Darkness and its print had left in Her thick black blood The Irrelevant felt on his body The Look of the Primary Abyss And shuddered The Voice was not there at that moment 2. The fingers of the Collector were playing With a bloodless two-tailed comet - I was expecting you- it came like a ridicule from the darkness of His hand,- I see you ve brought me some gifts Your planet- its no good- damaged commodity But I can take the sun It makes a pretty halo The Irrelevant answered him - My sun and my planet Will not be necessary to you At the place where you will go after a moment As well as the all off the rested here You shall die ugly and poor And after that I must finish The work you couldnt do - You are amusing- said Onosma - - And carelessly reached For a star which became boring to Him Like a child who picked up a tin-foil candy From an endlessly giant bonbonniere The star disappeared absorbed,- -What is you name? The Last man was looking at him implicitly The Hand was crawling on the Darkness Like a spider on a cobweb His fingers found something: - Look what Im having for you. The man went numb It was looking like aspace ship Its construction was resembling To a castle with the towers A flying castlesleeping starship Its nozzles were gaping extinct -There is one of yours insidehe is sleeping He was the first one from your race Who set against me Thats why Ive kept it,- The Hand turned with whole of His emptiness To the Irrelevant And finished mercilessly : - And I dont need a second one 3.
