A Misuse of the Word ‘Entropy’ by Elizabeth Derksen

Pining for nothing more or less than pure

Fabrication, now that I can’t construct

A think, and unlike before, nothing will

Materialize our of thin air under

My hands, and more and more, even more appears

Under others’ hands in China. We know

“Longevity is the antithesis

Of fashion”. We feel the horror of that

Life which causes visible wear. The scab

Of repair, a darn or a patch, will peel

Back to gnashing of teeth, detritus, debris—

We must make all things new every morning.
