Friction

Inspired by Gabriel Kahane's essay

To make fire
wheels propel vehicles
on sandpaper.

Principles are heuristic simplifiers
that demean the details
demanding efficiency

while details can only 
get you from one screen
to another state.

Thus, forget reason
deliberate on moments
rather than causes

ignore instructions
lose your recipes
while infinity is a walk

life has
as many moments 
as you notice.
