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
not unlike the quantifiable outcomes
of a Mobius strip.
Causality would seem to be
the perpetual function
more of the effect
than the cause.
