Dear Journey,

think of me as an appleless cart.
Think of the Brownian motion
of idealists.
Of glass, think broken.
Of stars, frozen.
Everything regresses to its core.

Every time we arrive at defeat
it is greater than a victory.
It is Laplace's demon,
maître du monde, your
friendly "self."
And who are we losing to, anyway?
