by Kristen Kosmas
"The play opens quietly, more or less, on the Eastern Seaboard and then closes, more or less miraculously, somewhere else altogether, achieving on its happy and troublous way all the things a reader or audience member could hope for-distance, speed, heart, submersion, emergence, truth, mystery, and more. By the end, in a plain and simple and fairly sad way, everything stands for everything else."
by Garrett Kalleberg
kosmas hello failure
Something feeds me zeros until
all my energy is consumed
in error correction.
I find myself
on a path I did not ask for
along an arc I cannot prevent.
I cannot prevent arcs.
I cannot prevent paths
in the form of mathematical certainty
Something feeds me,
and all my riches are immaterial. No matter
what I have done, or do, or will do,
probability will save me.
