I ask difficult questions that lead us
into everlasting discussions every time.
Is competition to survive necessary for organisms to evolve?
How friendly is causal entropy maximization?
Is world peace an achievable goal? I ask.
It was twenty years ago
I read Flaubert and wondered
when I would have my own Pécuchet.
It took time, but we've met.
(This is a poem for my best friend, Erick, who never gives up on me.)
