I got the mail today, walking all the way
to the mailbox and back again.
I am amazed at the risks we take
entirely for the sake of information.
We throw ourselves forward with such a
for our hard-earned current position.
This brazen flirtation with chaos,
this carefree reconciliation of paradoxes,
this applied transcendence,
this sorting out without first shooting,
this agreement to walk,
this leaning into and yielding to our own target identities …
the energizing pressure of hope.
