The structure is always structuring itself,

but we creatures of breath and clay

we disassemble in the wild naturally.


We craft the tools of our saving

not because we are clever like Odysseus

but because we are scared as children


who watch unbelievingly as the world

puts itself together around us,

and come to realize how it never


really had us in mind to begin with.

It’s no wonder why what we fear most

is a system that seeks its own perfection.


Who knows better than we how

effortlessly the human race is done in

by something as absent as entropy.

R. Charboneau
