Go Figure

Best one can figure
there are but two ways
word can figure world.

Radical order:
or uncertainty.

Evidence for both
abounds, abiding
by rules we either

do find or impose
depending on our
refined points of view.

The story we tell
ourselves is likely
full of surprises.

This includes the sense
that utter nonsense
is ruled out by the

presence of our brain,
and perfect order,
by the same token.

After all, we can
stand disorder but
only for so long.

I figure the best
story we can tell
has not yet been told

nor will it, ever—
but of course that, too, 
is a point of view.

We will keep trying
till we run out of 
words to figure worlds.
