The abyss of transition


Tradescantia ohiensis subesp. alba

.....It is the death of war that kills the valiant
.....And death of indecision takes the idle away.
.....The trade of the cutlass blunts its edge
.....And the beautiful die the death of beauty.
.....It takes an Elesin to die the death of death...
.....Only Elesin ... dies the unknowable death of death.

.....Wole Soyinka, Death and the King's Horseman (1975)
