future shadows in the past

all distances collapse into no space
the universe is smaller than a nut
mansion is tinier than mountain hut
all places converge into a single place
all species hide behind a single face
all things divided by a simple cut
all tracks united in one shallow rut
in complex unity all things interlace
never do we see the spaces filled
the emptiness replaced by solid time
but think eternity can never end
the sacrifice is always being killed
the victim sanctifies the noble crime
and every enemy becomes a friend
