When I say I love order, I don’t mean
I value lines or uniforms or rules.
(I’d be an anarchist, except that scene
has been usurped by weapon-toting fools.)
Obedience has never been my route –
impatience my persistent quality;
I’m not submissive. But my life’s pursuit
appears to be a war on entropy.
Detesting chaos and disdaining murk
have grown to be my attitude and stance.
I advocate for clarity – my work
is organizing information. Chance
is charming in a game, but don’t abide
disorder – that abets the other side.
