Lord of the Deep: Death of the self?…

*

‘…When Anu heard this, he called for the Bull of Heaven,

And handed its nose rope to the Princess Ishtar.

Ishtar led the Bull of Heaven down to earth.

 

*

When the Bull of Heaven snorts on the earth,

a crack will open in the land and swallow all the men-folk…

*

When the Bull of Heaven snorts a second time on the earth,

the land will crack open further and swallow all the women-folk…

*

When the Bull of Heaven snorts a third time on the earth,

the land will crack open still further and swallow all the child-folk…

 

*

I will cast your corpse down the narrow streets,

that the city orphans may gorge on it.

*

I will toss your innards to the city dogs,

that they might fight over them.

*

I will present your two horns to Shamash

to serve as a flask for his sweet oils.’
