Outpost Entropy, by Candace Kaucher

her website

Candace Kaucher takes the line, the thread of a thought, and teases out all individual microfibers that can come loose, dips each end in the stuff that turns metal rods into sparklers, then lights them all and writes down the song the sizzle makes. An excerpt:

Some days you are trapped.
Some days you are not.
All the days are the same.
So are you but you're too stupid
to know the difference.
Relativity equalizes grandiosity.
Anomalies are all local events,
All the songs on the radio
say the same thing:
whatever you are feeling.
Injustice started in grade school
when I crossed the street against the rules.
All hurt has been the same
ever since.

—Candace Kaucher
