I can be detonation

for Molly on her birthday

"Indeed," she sighed into a cup of tea.
"Many ideas are born each second and just
as many die. Why should I believe,"
and this was said
with a deliberate blink of the eye,
"that these new ideas of yours will last
longer than this conversation?"

"Certainly I can be creation. Just as surely
I can be detonation. But these are just
potentials."

Very cool. It brings to mind images of nuclear possibilities... particularly the explosive sort.

And that (neutral potential used for order OR chaos) brings my thoughts back to Lord of the Flies...
