the trap in sapience
stochastic step dance+
anti pattern

Nature is
      not a distillery
the product is only as pure
as its filter

relying on exception and reconciliation
don't hawk fidelity
you look silly
chasing elegant tail
   with your methodology
around your ankles

surely a universe
that drops her panties
       to your prejudices
allows Hanlon a close shave

the intelligence and playfulness of this, particularly the last stanza, reminds me of Cummings.

heh.. frail..has his way with the truth again. :) this is slick, and an irony the way you've packaged it. assuming of course is intelligence at its' weakest link. :) I have been gone dear Soma, but it's nice to see you're still posting. :)
