The Ancient Modern

Prima Causa /  Joshua Alan Sturgill                            

Chance is My servant 
no less than Design.
Thus, the seeds of the elm 
and the tendrils of vines
are blown or extend to
wherever they find;
no Necessity sends them
seeking for signs.
Their hope is unbounded 
because they are blind
