The Best Pieces

Was the universe made
for pleasure or meaning? 

To create meaning
eventually to take apart;
often to repair, re-purpose

or destroy.

When particles disintegrate
who can escape it and 
who collects the debris-

angel or demon?

Light and brimstone
both generating heat

the furnace fanned
by two great enemies

who fight for the 
best pieces.

This makes me think of growing up with brothers around dessert time--and so it might be between particles or angels and demons. Nice.
