Oftentimes, our finest
cannot be applied; 

the most crucial principle 
is also 

like traveling masslessly 
faster than light, 

or leaving a room 
before you arrived. 

As if we were selfish 
and self-
absorbed narcissists, 

some conclusions 
have peculiar habits

of suddenly, 
cruelly breaking 
it off with us.

And all we can do 
to rebound 
when this happens

is binge 
on such junk- 

thoughts as 
nothing is random,

and absence 
of evidence is evidence 
of absence.
