a–b, or, post hoc ergo propter hoc

Two ordinary humans, set on a sidewalk, will
inevitably stand, and walk simply
of their own accord
to the next relevant business.

The same humans, when
approaching one to the other, falter softly,
precariously, as if on a ridge or trip-wire,
trying to shift about in a strange tap
of strangers bound by a curved ribbon.

And if curved, then on one
continuous loop,
not unlike the quantifiable outcomes
of a Mobius strip.

Causality would seem to be
the perpetual function
more of the effect
than the cause.
