my mood makes me analyze the
platitudes written on my can of beer, like
‘everything goes wrong until you get it right’

it makes no sense when shaken apart
we didn’t either according to you
so I avoid that and move around the can and read

‘murphy was an optimist’
if you mean murphy’s law is actually
about the second law of thermodynamics

about entropy and cooling disorder…
except that if there is an impossible chance at order
a natural system will sometimes

sometimes, suddenly, passionately
overcome unbelievable odds
and self-organize spontaneously

into honeycombs of gorgeous strength
and beauty
and sustainability

‘it’s all in your head’
