6X9 ILFORD DELTA 100 (2008 - 2012) Citadel reverberates to a thousand voices, now dumb
What have we become?
What have we chosen to be?
Now, all history is reduced to the syllables of our name
nothing can ever be the same
now the Immortals are here
At the time it seemed a reasonable course to harness all the force
of life without the threat of death
but soon we found that boredom and inertia are not negative,
but all the law we know
and dead are will and words like survival
Arrival at immunity from all age, all fear and all end
why do I pretend?
Our essence is distilled
and all familiar taste is now drained
and though purity is maintained
it leaves us sterile
living through the millions of years…
