Uncreation in PL
 
Does Fish, or anyone 
Align the notion of Milton's text 
As "self-consuming artifact"
With an ordained devolution
Of the artifact of God's creation?In doctrinal history is
The biblical picture of a final 
Disassembly 
(Stars falling, elements melting, heavens
Rolling up like a scroll)
Treated as a consequence 
Necessarily of the Fall, or 
Rather as built-in, so 
To speak, to the raw, mere, 
Nature of the physical creation?Sh's "to the last syllable
Of Recorded time" may have
No relevance to PL But seems to me 
A marvelously suggestive 
Yoking, or "imping," of (A) 
The idea that creation is a text 
With an ordaind end
And (B) 
The picture of our conscious 
Willing life as a thing 
That tails off finally into incoherence.
