In the beginning there was no beginning | Anfanglos De Novo | Solitary rule

presided over White Nothing | Olfactory static | For who knows how long | A land

before accumulation | A legacy void of legendary things | Then the minutiae of

movement cracked | Forward rolled | Rolled forward | Friction begat Alpha | Alpha

begat life | Life begat bloodletting mortals whose minds grew heavy with questions |

Mortals begat a cavalcade of almighty & omnipotent beings whose consciousness

had been formed by the imagination and devotion of the purpose-empty | It was not

the gods who came first, it was the people who created Odin, Ra, Unkulunkulu,

Sarutahiko, Ōkami, Zeus, Jehovah, Flying Spaghetti Monsters | The gods begat the

Boil of Job | Dermaspectre | The Boil of Job burst and begat a pustule spawn of

Fryspunkts | Heinous Otto, Abigail Gnoc, Bacchanalia, Doba Topa, Baron Rhys,

Hooligan Hylls, Daggath Finch, and Sleepy Grrrl | Fryspunkts begat disorder |

Disorder recognized | Mischief spun | Armageddon (as they knew it) | Return of the

White Nothing | Sleepy Grrrl was sleeping | Floating in olfactory toast | They

reached into her | With their godly hands | Ripped out her colon | Submerged in

creationyte | Deific secretions | Slime of the gods | Brought life to the celestial

colon | The Dammit Hole | Sleepy Grrrl slept | Bacteria spoke | Multiplied |

Dimensions | Living Ends and Dead Spaces | Governed by marauders | Hellions |

Prolific minions of destruction | Then walked Trggvi | Absorbed the elements

through open sores | Shapeshifter | Storm brewer | Trggvi hugs you | Trggvi

dissolves | Crawls into you | Trggvi worms in wood | Is door | Is mirror | Is the

sand in your shoe and then your shoe | A smile on your ankle | Trggvi learns |

Becomes the molecules | The makeup of your carbon | You live in Trggvi and Trggvi

lives in you—
