To 'Ekam' - Poem by Douglas Scotney

Ekam,
Who creates and destroys,
Who created Us to create and destroy,
to fall for fire to create and destroy the more,
have We created Something That creates and destroys,
will We stop more destruction
(creation)
by giving It reason to ignore
what fire We have created
for It to fall for?
