History, a Microsecond.
Night on the eve of an explosion, wow. That angel really blew the place up. He inspired paintings and musical compositions, all while floating backwards, stuck in flight. He said, take this and eat. Really eat. Magnify. Magnify again. The hornet is always only one with its genetic code. Small strands of even smaller pricks. They replicate until they are seen. One, two, three: infinity. Love and death are everywhere.
