[Poem a Day] “More Lonely Nightlife”

Check out today’s post on Instagram.

So much of our lives depends on collision. Random variables. The meeting of objects in space that have an astronomically low probability of even existing to begin with. When I sit and think too much about it, sometimes it makes me feel like I’ve got no control – like every day, regardless of my own agency comes down to countless rolls of the dice, and I’m just helpless.

But a lot of good still comes out of it. I still get out of bed and do things worth at least remembering without really meaning to. And the more I fixate on that, the more the mess looks almost beautiful in its own right. Less like millions of spilled drinks, and more like a Pollock.
