Too On the Nose

Compabilitism falls back on


The determinist argues

That his own argument

Precludes an awareness that can be made

Obtaining a quality

Whose role in the universe

In non-trivial

Free wheel means

Free will means

Not the talents, skills, instinctual advantage


It means that we’re defined by the obstacles we willingly choose to overcome

The ephemeral ego, always a smoke to fire already burned

In enraged by our pursuits

The story we tell of the obstacles

And our immersion with the obstacle that turns us into the concluding remarks of an equation, an objective fact, an exposed pattern

To be reinterpreted again by an ego made by its troubles
