Crystal


Why assume the unlikely presence of a doping agent?
Why not assume the also unlikely purity?
How is one incalculably unlikely event preferable to you than
the other, and why celebrate the necesary?
The glass warmed and cooled
with the rising sun
for 5 years.
The crystals sometimes grow, sometimes not.
Conditions are not always perfect.
The glass reached ideal temperature
within the first 10 minutes
this morning.
It stood another 5 hours before the crystals began to form.
The conditions were perfect,
the water super-saturated,
nothing happened.
Stability is a lack of motion.
Then all at once,
a piece of lint
touched the water,
within an instant crystals lined the glass,
from top, to bottom.
For perfection is a state without change.
And life is never perfect.
