Logic Fails- Introducing Nicholas Gagnier

I’ve been reflecting on my place in the universe, a
sense of worth from all these travels. I’ve been resenting the
berths between us, the mirth
of mania so eagerly
unraveled,
yet never malleable enough to close the gap.
I’ve been obsessing over how to make this last,
doing the math to make you stay,
but all the variables are based in
miscalculation,
barely equations in name.
I’ve been dissenting, instead, embracing my
wrath, for the day all
logic fails and arithmetic won’t hold us
back, considering how five figures
amount to jack, and
sound out the solutions we were once unable to
articulate.
I’m out of pieces to divide among you, at long
fucking last; no methods to madness, just
riddles and
relapses, a
hypothesis to
redact.
It wasn’t always going to be
this way, but I know
no part of
you still
believes that.

  1. an absolute honor to have you with us Nicholas. I’ve been a fan boy of yours pretty much since I joined WP. This opening salvo as an SD member is a prime example of why I hold you in such high esteem. Fantastic, and welcome to the tribe.
