Give Our Titles, Our Texts,
A Purpose Beyond Marketing





All we can know is data.
Even the interpretation of data is data.

Stranger, give me a trajectory
and estimate of duration,
and I will launch at the target
my entire composition.

I will not assume
as a tactic of contingency or conclusion
the tiresome glory, the glorious tedium
of the epic.

A different result requires a different input.
Or different conditions.
Or an intervention of chance.

Comparison is safe;
it's contrast that can be deadly.

Around the time we change from coming to going,
we begin to think it strange how little time for being.
